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. Here's how you can help.

Get involved 

  • Back and share our call for co-operative growth. We are urging all political parties to commit to co-operative growth. Our lobbying efforts are strengthened every time a co-operative backs the campaign. We'll be contacting the new Prime Minister and government after the general election on 4 July. Please also share invite your members, employees, customers and supporters to back our campaign.
