The Co-op Economy is the nation’s only comprehensive report on the UK’s co‑operative sector. It reveals turnover, membership and employee figures for 1000s of co‑op businesses across the UK.
The 2018 report showed us that new co‑operatives are almost twice as likely to survive their first five years when compared to companies. Only 44% of companies make it through those difficult opening years while 80% of co‑ops are still going strong. To view and download the full report click here.
