Working for common wealth across the nation
We're a Consortium Co-op of local Co-operative Development Bodies (CDBs), practitioners and supporters across England.
We formed specifically to take on larger co-operative development services and advice projects; to strengthen the CDB sector; and to bring specialist services to locations that do not already benefit from them.
Building Back Better
Our network of co-operative development experts exists to help you succeed. Together, our experience is unrivalled.
We treat every project with a unique approach and fresh thinking. We also develop new ideas that can be introduced in almost any town - our current focus is on co-operative development hubs.
We work with new and established co-ops, with commissioners, agencies and statutory bodies, and with grassroots activists in communities.
We step in when no single CDB has the scale or the capacity, to ensure that high quality advice is always available.
