Run by the members, for the members, we have more power together

Co-op Fortnight is the annual campaign to raise the profile of co-ops across the UK. Running from 21 June to 4 July, co-ops are joining together in a rallying cry, "join a co-op!"

Co-ops and other organisations across the UK are invited to share the 'UK's best kept secret - co-ops!'

Millions of people are already members of a co-op, and over the next two weeks we're sharing stories and videos to encourage even more people to get involved - by becoming a member of their local co-op, learning what a co-op actually is or attending an event.

From film festivals to Co-op Congress, the next two weeks are jam packed with events and inspiring content to share on social media using the hashtag #JoinACoop. 

What's coming up.....

Over the next two weeks, Co-operatives UK will be sharing videos and case studies of our co-operative members, with the first week culminating in Co-op Congress and our AGM. Book your free places

During the second week of the campaign we'll be launching the Co-op Economy report, which reveals the size and turnover of the UK sector and how co-ops have adapted and survived during the pandemic, with the week ending with International Day of Co-ops. Download the #CoopsDay pack

This is our chance to shout collectively about co-ops, celebrate our members and encourage more people to #JoinACoop. 

Don't miss out

Follow us on Twitter and Facebook to get the latest shareable resources, as soon as they launch
