It's time to co-operate

For Co-operatives Fortnight 2017 – which runs from 17 June to 1 July – people across the country are being asked to share stories of how working together has made a difference.

Co-operatives Fortnight is the co-operative sector’s national campaign, a two week period when co-ops of all shapes and sizes take the opportunity to promote being a co-op.

For this year’s activity, supporters of co-operatives will be asking their staff, members, customers and friends, to share their stories of co-operation.

Co-operatives across the UK

A recently released report from Co-operatives UK shows how successful the co-op sector has continued to be over the last five years. The turnover has seen an increase of £700 million in that time. 

The 6,815 independent co-ops in the UK alone, with around 226,000 colleagues, and 13.6 million members demonstrates the underlying health of the co-operative sector.
