Help influence Scottish government

Following the collapse of the SNP and Green party coalition, join our policy team on Monday 13 May to discuss next steps for co-operatives in Scotland.

Thank you to all the co-ops who took part in our consultation to inform the Scottish government review of how to increase the number of co-ops, social enterprises and employee-owned businesses. We are optimistic that the final report will reflect the needs and aspirations of our members. 

However, the outputs of the review will only be recommendations. Given the collapse of the coalition, there is now a large question mark over the future direction of Scottish government. 

A collective effort from the co-operative movement is essential to convince the minority SNP government to adopt and enact these policies and continue with the wellbeing economy agenda. 

While we await the final publication of the review, we want to meet with Scottish co-operatives to consider next steps. At this online meeting, we'll be discussing:

  • The future of the co-operative and democratic business agenda in Scotland
  • How co-operatives can seize potential new opportunities in Scotland
  • How co-operatives can best position themselves as strategic partners to Scottish government in delivering the review recommendations
  • How Co-operatives UK can best support Scottish members
