Stir to Action and Co-operatives UK are running a series of study visits to learn from an exciting range of co-operatives across West Yorkshire. 

To mark Co-op Fortnight 2024 – an annual campaign from 21st June to 4th July that celebrates co‑operatives as an altogether different way to do business – Stir to Action and Co-operatives UK are working on a series of study visits in West Yorkshire.

The study visit programme is part of the Business for Good West Yorkshire partnership – an 18-month programme of accelerators, business coaching, and other training free specialist support to help people start or grow organisations that help make communities in West Yorkshire into better places to live and work.

There’s something inspiring for everyone in the programme – from bakeries and town halls to wholefood sellers.

Join us at these workplaces and local sites to meet the founders and workers, and you’ll find out about how they got started, their growth model, where they get business support, how they make decisions as a democratic business, their routes to finance, and how they connect their business model to social purpose.

If you’re a new business looking for inspiration, an existing co-op looking to grow, or perhaps you work for local government or a community infrastructure body and are keen to know more about local community and democratically run businesses, explore the study visit programme options below and register your place.

*All visits are 11am to 1pm and come with a free lunch.
