To date, around 700 new and existing co-operatives have received free advice and training from The Co-operative Enterprise Hub.
Whether it’s a chalet park or a social research company, co-operatives from Cumbria to Cornwall have all benefitted from the tailored support that the Enterprise Hub offers. We are working together to grow the co-operative economy in the UK.
The Co-operative Enterprise hub runs a programme to provide support to other co-operatives across the UK. The Advice and Training programme enables new and existing co-operatives to receive expert support to develop as successful co-operative businesses.
The programme is delivered at a regional level through co-operative consortia of Co-operative Development Bodies and other partners.
The aim of the programme is to provide a range of expertise for emerging and developing co operatives. Co-ops can apply to receive up to four days of support, which could include business planning, feasibility studies or legal and governance advice. It might be sector specific advice in fields such as community services, credit unions or retail.
There are many forms and structures that Co-operatives might take. We can help you to decide which suits your organisation. We may help with Industrial & Provident Society structures or Company structures.
