Helping co-operatives be the best they can be

Each year we help scores of new co-operatives come into existence; we provide expert advice to hundreds of co-operatives; we lobby government to provide the best possible environment for co-operatives to grow and thrive; we secure £millions in external funding for co-operative development.

Our members, who are all co-operatives or organisations that support co-operatives and co-operation, make all this (and much more) possible. As a co-operative we are owned by those members and work with and alongside them to help create a create a fairer society - built on co-operation.
