Back our Call for Co-operative Growth 

We're calling on the entire Movement to get behind our call for all political parties to commit to co-operative growth this Co-op Fortnight (24 June to 7 July). Co-ops offer an altogether different way of doing business. They’re democratic. They share power and wealth across the economy. We now need the next UK government to take action to unleash co-operative potential.

With a general election has been called for Thursday 4 July we'll be lobbying the next government to back co-operatives - and you can help.
