Apply to become a support provider for The Hive

Over the past year The Hive business support programme has successfully delivered one to one expert advice, training and group support to over 100 groups across the UK.

We couldn’t do this without our pool of expert support providers and we are now looking to increase this to meet demand.

The Hive is a business support programme from Co-operatives UK and The Co-operative Bank, for people wanting to start or grow co-operative or community enterprises. It launched in February 2016 and will run until December 2018 – see our infographic on The Hive's achievements to date.
