Cooperative Enterprise Hub
= support structure for beginning UK coops
"The Co-operative Enterprise Hub is looking to inspire the next generation of co-operative pioneers and arm them with the necessary skills and knowledge to grow their co-operative and, in turn, the UK co-operative economy. We believe passionately that the co-operative way offers individuals the opportunity to come together to create businesses that are better for them and society.
The Hub has been set up by The Co-operative as a one-stop shop for free advice, training and access to finance for new and existing co-operatives. Services are delivered, free of charge, throughout the UK by experienced co-operative development advisers." (http://www.co-operative.coop/enterprisehub/About-the-hub/)
