Type: Co-operatives UK documents  |  Topic: About co-operatives  |  Format: Documents and policies

As the dust begins to settle on the vote to leave the EU, we have set out our position and plans on how co-operatives can fit into a post-Brexit Britain. We have put together a short briefing to explain:

  • What we have done to date, including aggregating members’ concerns about Brexit and representing co-ops' interests to government
  • Three ‘Brexit principles’ to guide our policy work when negotiations over exiting the European Union begin
  • How co-ops – by giving people a greater stake and share in the economy – can help address some of the fundamental concerns that led many people to vote to leave the EU.
