SWCD provides expert business development and support services for all forms of new and existing co-operatives, community owned businesses, and social enterprises.

Consultancy covers everything from the initial advice we offer to individuals or groups, all the way to detailed analysis and financial modelling for large, established co-operatives.

Your directors and other team members will benefit from our many years of experience in social enterprise and SFEDI accredited small business advice. We can work with you informally in exploratory discussions; or through a structured training or facilitation session that deals systematically and creatively with the issues facing you.

We specialise in support for brand new ventures, and can help by building support for new ideas and introducing opportunities that have been successful elsewhere.
