Model governing documents
All new co-operatives need a governing document. Model governing documents, often referred to as model rules, are template documents that can be used by new organisations to ensure they set off on the correct legal footing.
Access the full range of model governing documents below and in list form here.
"We chose to register our CCBS with the support of Co-operatives UK. The online information about different models of governance was very helpful to the group of volunteers who had mostly not heard of community benefit societies, and the speedy processing of the paperwork resulted in the fastest registration of a new society I have experienced."
