Our innovative project work has a global reach, from international co-operative development in countries such as Malawi, Sri Lanka, Zambia and Rwanda, to partnering in a range of European co-operative education programmes. We also work closer to home in the UK, with a wide range of projects spread from Fife in Scotland to Plymouth on the south coast.

At its heart, all our project work has a strong sense of social justice, reflecting the 7th Co-operative Principle: Concern for the Community.

International Development

We work with individuals and communities to change lives. We provide training that enables people to overcome disadvantage and cultural barriers, to work together to build their own co-ops and transform their own lives and those of their communities. Read more about our life changing work here.


Our European projects tackle some of society's biggest challenges, including youth unemployment and the rebalancing of the economy to provide decent living and working conditions. Read more here.


We have a number of different projects taking place right across the UK, which help strengthen the UK co-operative movement. These include youth projects, work with people with learning difficulties, disabilities and autism, and ensuring women are fairly represented in the co-op movement. Read more here.
