What is a Co-operative?

A Co-operative is defined by its adherence to the Co-operative Values and Principles (see V&P’s on our website),  but they all will be enterprising, while some have social objectives and are ‘not for personal profit’ others are to primarily benefit their members.   Co-operatives can take many legal forms (although invariably they are incorporated as Co-operatives or Community Benefit Societies).  They are found in many sectors including agriculture/housing/retail/education/service industries/manufacturing/leisure/financial/child care etc and there are many types ie worker co-operatives/Multi stakeholder/housing/consortiums/community co-operatives/membership co-operatives.  The majority of co-operatives strive to achieve success within a triple bottom line (financial/environmental/social)
