When & Where
Wales Co-operative Centre
The Wales Co-operative Centre is Wales’ national body for co-operatives, mutuals, social enterprises and employee owned businesses. We apply our co-operative values to strengthening communities and services as well as supporting these businesses.
For over thirty years, we’ve helped organisations and communities by providing responsive, reliable and flexible support.
Our work covers two broad areas.
- We support Wales’ economic growth by providing a comprehensive range of services to co-operatives, mutuals, social enterprises and employee owned businesses. We have been doing so successfully for over thirty years. As well as recognising the value of co-operatives as a business model, we also believe that the principles of co-operation can be applied to the traditional business sector for the benefit of the wider economy. Co-operation can act as a business advantage. As experts in co-operation, we have a role in supporting traditional businesses to gain a co-operative advantage from applying co-operative values and principles to their businesses, for example through consortia working.
- The Centre has considerable experience of delivering innovative programmes that strengthen communities and promote inclusion in a variety of different ways. We helped establish many of Wales’ credit unions and continue to work closely with the credit union movement to promote financial inclusion. The Wales Co-operative Centre is the leading organisation delivering digital inclusion interventions in Wales and currently delivers Digital Communities Wales on behalf of Welsh Government
