How can The Hive help you?

The Hive launched one year ago, to help launch new co-ops and existing co-ops to grow with free online resources and expert business and mentor support.

To date the business support programme, run by Co-operatives UK in partnership with The Co-operative Bank, has helped over 100 groups and co-ops across the UK, with a promise of helping a further 150 in 2017 alone.

Watch our inspiring short film above about how an artisan bakery and workers co-op have 'reimagined' work, find out how The Hive can help your co-op idea or business, or read our infographic outlining some of The Hive's activity to date.
