"Co‑operatives UK’s help and guidance has potentially unlocked more than £200,000 of investment to help fund our new football ground and community facility in Moston, north Manchester and helped secure the long-term future of the club. They gave us quality, professional advice and really understood our needs." Andy Walsh, General Manager, FC United
