An opportunity for groups across the Lancaster district and beyond to discover the power of co-ops to strengthen communities.

The last decade has seen an increase in the number of community owned co‑ops across the UK. Co‑ops are democratic businesses that allow local communities to take control of the services and spaces that matter most to them. They enable people to pool resources to trade goods and services that benefit the community. 

The one‑hour session included Daniel Clarke, Community Wealth Building Officer at Lancaster City Council, Co‑operatives UK’s Petra Morris and Green Elephant Co-op at Halton Mill, Lancaster.
