Our Expertise Covers Two Broad Areas
1. Supporting Wales’ Economic Growth
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 35 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.
2. Delivering Innovative Programmes That Strengthen Communities & Promote Inclusion
We have 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. We are the leading organisation delivering digital inclusion interventions in Wales and currently deliver Digital Communities Wales on behalf of Welsh Government.
