Co-ops offer a way for more people to take control of the economy. Tell us how your co-op is doing in the first ever co-operative census

We've launched the co-operative census to help us understand how member-owned businesses are faring across the UK – what’s working, what the challenges are, where they would like to be, what they need to get there.

We’re inviting all co-operatively run, member-owned businesses and organisations to take part - make sure your co-op gets involved.
