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.

What will the day be about?

An interactive exploration of the history and application of the co‑operative enterprise model; the many different types there are and their distinctive features and advantages relative to other models. It will:

  • Outline the opportunities that a co‑operative business model offers community groups and businesses
  • Help groups already looking to start a business or organisation to determine whether the co‑operative option is right for them
  • Help groups identify what further work is needed to do before you are able to register as a co‑operative

What will attendees learn?

  • The wide range of different types of co‑operative and the sectors they operate in
  • The advantages and distinctive features of the co‑operative model
  • The factors that determine the most appropriate co‑operative model for a given enterprise
  • The support available to co‑operative start‑ups and conversions
