Founded in 1919 as part of a Co-operative Congress Resolution, 2019 promises to be a landmark year in our illustrious history. 

Our launch event, held in central Manchester, showcased how we've changed over the years and how our work continues to transform communities and change lives here in the UK and across the world.

As an independent, member led educational charity, our focus throughout 2019 will be on continuing to transform the educational landscape, with plans in place for a Co-operative University and the launch of a spring programme of courses focused on developing the next generation of co-operative leaders.
