The Co-operative Enterprise Hub

The Co-operative Enterprise Hub offered a pioneering programme of business advice and support to develop new and
existing co-ops.

It was launched by The Co-operative in 2009 and ran until 2014 – supporting over 1,500 organisations with tailored advice.

If you want to learn more about the Hub and some of the inspirational people and communities it helped to do business in a better way, have a look at our New Pioneers Reports.

A new business support programme - The Hive - is now available to people who want to start or grow a co-operative or community enterprise. It's being delivered by Co-operatives UK in partnership with The Co-operative Bank and offers comprehensive and simple online guidance to starting a co-operative business, as well as one-to-one advice, group advice, peer mentoring and skills training sessions.
