What is Co-operatives UK?
Co-operatives UK is a network of thousands of co-operatives. We are owned and controlled by our members, who are member-owned organisations.
Alongside our members, we work consistently and proactively to grow the co-operative economy by promoting, developing and uniting co-operatives.
Our vision is to build a better world through co-operation.
Our mission is to grow the co-operative economy in the UK.
How do we do this?
We promote co-ops by lobbying policy makers and raising awareness of co-ops to the public through our campaigning activities.
We develop co-ops by providing specialist advice to co-operative businesses, and securing funding to support the sector to grow and thrive.
We unite co-ops by organising national events, local workshops and networking sessions so co-ops can connect, learn and do business together.
