Why are we interested in this?
We believe that co-operatives can offer a genuinely affordable and community minded solution to the crisis we are living in. There are 300 existing co-ops in and around London and we want to help them become more inclusive. We are also passionate about creating new co-ops for people from all backgrounds.
How are we going to do this?
-Training: organise training workshops delivered by experts on equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI)
-Action research: carry out research on existing co-ops, interviews and surveys
How to get involved
The project is open to both co-operative members and interested individuals. No previous experience is needed and you will receive support in exploring what you are interested in. Participation is voluntary but we are seeking partnerships with co-ops and research organisations to help fund the project.
