Cooperatives UK

I’ve just joined


Co-operatives UK is the national trade body that campaigns for co-operation and works to promote, develop and unite co-operative enterprises.

We have a unique role as a trade association for co-operatives. We aim to bring together all those with a passion and interest in co-operative action.

The staff at Co-operatives UKWe work to promote the co-operative alternative across many sectors of the economy from high street consumer-owned co-operatives to pubs and football clubs, healthcare to agriculture, credit unions to community owned shops.

Together the co-operative economy is worth some £33.5 billion and has 12.9 million members. Co-operatives are the largest membership movement in the country.

Co-operatives UK is headed up by its Secretary General, Ed Mayo. To read more about him on Wikipedia click here and for a full staff list click here.
