Our early analysis of the impact of Covid-19 on co-operatives alongside an identification of gaps in support and asks of government.

Like all businesses, co-ops are being hit hard by Covid-19. Our early analysis reveals that:

  • One in two co-ops (48 per cent) report experiencing cash flow issues,
  • Almost 40 percent are having to furlough workers in order to survive
  • Looking to the medium-long term 70 percent of co-ops express concerns about the health of their business
