There are many benefits to converting an existing business or organisation to a co‑operative. Find out what's involved in an employee or community buyout and what support is available.
The most common options for converting to co-operative ownership:
A community buyout is where key assets and enterprises are taken into the ownership of the local community, or a community of interest.
Employee buyouts are where ownership of a business is transferred to its employees. We offer Business Support to convert to a co-op.
Charity conversions are where charities convert into democratically-owned charitable organisations, often using community shares. Contact our advice team for help with this.
