About Co-operatives Fortnight

Every year hundreds of co-ops and organisations across the UK work together to promote co-ops during Co-op Fortnight.

Co-op 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.

In 2018 we celebrated the difference co-ops make across the UK, published The Co-op Economy Report, which revealed co-ops are twice as likely to survive the difficult first five years compared to other businesses, and produced a short film Co-operate (please share on FacebookTwitterYouTube).

From 24 June to 7 July 2019, join us for two weeks of mass co-operation to spread the co-op word and share the values that make our businesses different. Get involved >
