The Co-operative, you can become a member online now or just pick up a leaflet in store. As a member, you'll not only have a say in the way we are run, but also get a share in our profits, as a big thank you for shopping with us.

We’re part of the community

Making good things happen for local projects nationwide

Here for everyone

The communities we serve have always been important to us. They are after all the very reason we were formed. So we not only provide support to our chosen Charity of the Year, but our Community Fund raises money for projects nationwide too and gets people working together to benefit their community.

Our Inspiring Young People programme and our Green Schools Revolution are just two of 10,000 projects and they help a new generation build the communities of the future.

Ultimately, our aim is to be the most socially responsible business in the UK, offering our members and customers not only value, but values.

We're proud of our history

Helping communities thrive

Here for generations

Originally formed in Rochdale in 1844 to offer real value to the community, 168 years on and our founding principles still stand. The world may have changed somewhat in those years but the need for a more ethical business, a more honest one and a more customer focussed one clearly hasn't. We're here for you in good and bad times. We're here for you for life.
