Our Together Enterprise Project empowers people to set up their own co-operative businesses and includes training, mentoring and much, much more! 

Many people face significant difficulties in securing decent work and are often forced into poorly paid, insecure jobs with little prospect of progression. We believe that people have the drive and ability to succeed. Our Together Enterprise project focuses on removing the barriers so that they can.

What's involved?

Together Enterprise encourages participants to learn about co-operatives, co-operative ways of working and enterprise through interactive workshops and drop-in sessions. A key focus of the project is also on developing key co-operative skills including team working, self-confidence and group decision making.

Aimed at people aged 16-30, the project consists of:

  • Support from mentors to develop your co-operative enterprise.
  • A co-operative launch party and crowdfunding event.
  • Ongoing support from us, mentors and the local community.

Our Together Enterprise scheme has run right across the UK, including in Edinburgh and Rochdale, regarded by many as the birthplace of the modern day Co-operative Movement.
