The Wales Co-operative Centre is the UK’s largest co-operative development agency. As the leading organisation for the sector in Wales, we provide our members with access to expert advice, training, events and policy development – and together we drive forward the social business sector in Wales.

Membership will give you:

  • Access to exclusive online training events and webinars
  • Previews of our research before general publication
  • A dedicated email address for basic support on topics such as governance and HR
  • Discounts on bespoke consultancy services and in-depth support
  • Admission to member-only networking events and social gatherings, so you can connect to other co-operators and build co-operative partnerships
  • An influential voice helping shape our policy responses and Ministerial briefings
  • Early-bird registration for the annual Social Business Wales Awards
  • Opportunities to publish blogs about your work on our website
  • A role in the work of the Wales Co-operative Centre and participation in its democratic processes
  • Regular updates about ways in which you can get involved in the Centre and the co-operative movement in Wales

You’ll be demonstrating your commitment to co-operative values and showing support for co-operative businesses – businesses which create quality local jobs and return wealth to local communities.

And you’ll join a growing community of like-minded people and organisations who believe that co-operative thinking and action can build a better future for everyone in Wales.
