Membership packages

Three people smiling

We’re a network of thousands of businesses – a network that increases in size and influence with each new member. Our range of membership packages cater for the needs of all co‑operatives.

We exist to help co-operative businesses be the best they can be. We do this in lots and lots of ways. 

  • We promote co-ops by lobbying policy makers and raising awareness of co-operatives 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.

As a co-operative ourselves, we are owned by our members (who themselves are co-operatives or businesses that support co-operative principles).
