We are an independent co-operative development agency, which has helped local people to set up co-operatives and other forms of democratic business for 30 years. If you want advice, training and support to set up a worker co-operative, community owned enterprise or credit union we can help you. We can also provide assistance to employee buy-outs. Most of our services are free and all are confidential. We work to encourage all forms of community economic development; and we aim to provide a realistic and sustainable approach to developing the local economy. There are over 100 co-operatives and credit unions associated with CaSE-da in Leicester and the County.
