We believe that when people come together and co-operate, they can design and run care and support services that matter to them and their community. Care to Co-operate’s ‘Resource and Learning Hub’ is dedicated to co-operative development – if your starting out, take our micro-learning course, ‘How to Start a Co-operative’, and get clued – up on what you need to know to launch your own co-operative!
Explore the world of co-operation and learn through animations and quizzes
How to Start a Co-operative is a free and interactive course is split into stages, full of animations and quizzes. You decide what to learn and when – we’ve made it fun and easy to follow. You will learn about co-operatives, important laws that make them happen, and how to get your own care and support co-operative off the ground.
