Benefits of membership

We help co-operatives become the best they can be. Here you'll find information about how we support and empower co-operatives and co-operation.

Championing and supporting

We champion and support our members. Each year 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 funding for co-operative development; and help bring new co-ops into existence.

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 fairer society.

No-one knows our organisation’s purpose and core values better than we do. However, we were missing the technical knowledge and professional support from a body who truly understands the 'co-operative' element of our business. The level of service, knowledge and resources gained through our membership with Co-operatives UK has exceeded all expectations.

The expertise from such a high calibre team of professionals has proved invaluable to us in the areas of HR and governance. Co-operatives UK has been central to us breathing some much needed new life in to our co-op, helping us to become more current and dynamic.
– Larke Adger, CEO, West Granton Housing Co-operative
