A briefing for co-operative councils

Retaining local clusters of co-ops and social enterprise will be critical to any efforts to #BuildBackBetter after the COVID-19 crisis. Co-operative councils will no doubt be concerned to learn that around 20 percent of co-ops and more than 50 percent of social enterprises list 'ineligibility for any government grant' as a critical threat to their survival. 

Co-operatives UK has prepared a quick briefing for Co-operative Councils, covering the local benefits of co-ops, the latest survey data from the sector and suggestions for how councils can boost support for local co-ops.
