If you're a new or existing co-operative, the Hub can provide you with up to four days' free support, depending on your needs. Expert advice and training is delivered by co-operative development advisers and is available to you at any stage of your co-operative's journey – if you're starting out, wanting to expand or wanting to change your management structure, the Hub is here to help.
During your advice and training, advisers can also work with you to put together a finance package.
The Co-operative Enterprise Hub also offers specialist packages of support for renewable energy co-operatives and groups involved in employee buyouts.
And we can even help you if you’re exploring the idea, but have not yet decided whether a co-operative is the right model for you. Our buddy scheme will pair you up with another co-operative in your area or sector, who can share with you first-hand experience of what’s it’s like to set up and run a co-operative enterprise.
