Is a Co-op right for you? FREE workshop!
Co-op Futures are teaming up with Co-operatives UK to run this FREE workshop in Birmingham next month.
If you’re considering a co-operative model, then this is for you! We’ll talk about what it takes to set up a co-operative business and the support that’s available to you through Co-operatives UK and the USE-IT! programme.
