We are the rebuilders: Four co-operative offers for building back better from COVID-19


Type: Co-operatives UK documents  |  Topic: About co-operatives  |  Format: Report

'We are the rebuilders' is a short new paper by Co-operatives UK. It makes four co-op ‘offers’ to everyone working for a more sustainable and just future.

In this moment of crisis, co-ops are a great way for people to:

1. create decent new livelihoods

2. keep viable jobs in their community

3. breathe new life into local assets and enterprise

4. convert newfound community spirit into transformative social action 

We will continue our work with our members and partners to champion co-ops and support their development. Together we will make meaningful progress on all four offers. We will sow the seeds for something better to grow. But government support now could multiply our collective impacts, helping us to grow bigger and faster, as well as better.
