Co-operative Development

Growing the co-operative movement

Co-operative businesses are owned and run by and for their members, whether they are customers, employees or residents. As well as giving members an equal say and share of the profits, co-operatives act together to build a better world. Co-operatives are a flexible business model. They can be set up in different ways, using different legal structures, depending on what works for the members.

Thinking about setting up a social enterprise, scheme or service? Why not think about the co-operative model.

What we offer:

  • We’ll see if the co-operative model is right for you

  • Best practices, policies and procedures to ensure the successful management of your start-up
