About Co‑operatives UK

Co‑operatives UK is the network for Britain's thousands of co-operatives.

Our mission is to grow the Co-operative Economy. Alongside our members we work to promote, develop and unite co-operatives across all sectors, from major high street retailers and large agricultural businesses to community owned pubs and credit unions.

Owned and run by our members, we connect businesses that give people more control over the things that matter to them.
