Co-operatives and Government

Setting up a Public Service Co-operative

Are you looking into setting up a co-operative as an alternative way to deliver public services?

Our member South East Co-operative Support has a network of specialist support providers who can work with people wanting to establish co-operative or mutual ventures from a publicly delivered service.

Lobbying government

Co-operatives UK provides the focal point for co-operatives to lobby government for changes to legislation affecting co-operatives e.g. the recent Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014 and changes to the way societies are regulated.
