About Co-operatives Fortnight

Co-operatives Fortnight is a chance to remind people that co-operatives make a difference to people's lives right around the world.

Running from 23 June to 7 July 2018, Co-operatives Fortnight is organised by Co-operatives UK, sponsored by some of the UK’s most successful co-operatives and brought to life by co-ops across the UK.

Launched in 2010, Co-operatives Fortnight has gone from strength to strength. In 2015 we introduced a focused activity with co-ops across the country organising 'Big Co-op Cleans' that brought people together to tidy up local public spaces or clear out their cupboards for foodbanks. After its successful introduction, The Big Co-op Clean returned for a second year in 2016.

“Co-operatives Fortnight is an opportunity for us to shout about how proud we are to be a co-operative."
