A clear, simple and understandable guide to the legal and governance processes required to support the third sector - from co-operatives to social enterprises. Second edition.
This guide has been created as part of a "Simply" series of publications to support the set-up and governance of co-operative and community enterprises. The series will include:
Simply Finance - a comprehensive guide to the different options for financing a community enterprise.
Simply Governance - A comprehensive guide to understanding the systems and processes concerned with the running of a sustainable community enterprise.
Simply Start Up - A guide for anyone involved in the creation of an enterprise that will be owned by, run by, and supported by the community in which it operates.
This Simply Legal guide is also supported by the From Conflict to Co-operation series of booklets, also produced by Co-operatives UK. This series shows how to deal with conflict by:
- improving communication;
- improving meetings and decision-making;
- managing the change caused by organisational growth and development; and
- clarifying the role of the governing body.
