What is Co-operatives Fortnight?

Co-operatives fortnight is an annual event where hundreds of co-operatives join together to promote the impact that they have across the UK and beyond. This year it takes place from the 23 June to the 7 July.

What we'll be talking about

We're proud of the #coopdifference our work makes to the lives and communities of those involved. Over the course of the two weeks we’ll be showcasing just some of the projects that we're running here in the UK and across the globe.
