Why you should consider joining Co-operatives UK
Co-operatives UK is at the heart of a national network of co-operative specialists working to develop more and stronger co-operative businesses.
We are the first port of call if you are thinking of starting a co-operative business. Alongside our clear and simple tools, we can get you started on your journey by connecting you to other people and organisations that can give you the help and advice you need.
But once your co-operative is set up and running, what then?
Co-operatives UK is a membership organisation, and all the work we do is done with the support and expertise of our members. If you use our co-operative registration services, you can become a member of Co-operatives UK at the same time. The moment your co-operative is registered, you can take advantage of any number of our member benefits, getting help, support and advice just when your business needs it most.
But more than that, you will then become part of a national network of co-operatives and co-operators, all looking to build a better world through co-operation. You will be supporting Co-operatives UK in everything it does, from influencing policy at the highest levels to helping other organisations just like yours take the first step into the wider world of co-operation.
