Co-operating with others

Let’s build communities of the future together

We’re a funder with a co-operative difference. That’s why we believe bringing to life our Future Communities Vision can only be done through co-operation.  

We’ll do this by co-operating with others from across the Co-op and wider co-operative movement, and the social change and philanthropy sectors.  

We’re actively seeking opportunities to share, collaborate on and advocate for our co-operative approach to funding, and we want to bring our voices together to campaign on shared priorities. 

Please contact us directly to discuss ways we can work together to increase our combined reach and impact. 

We love to work in collaboration 

We’ve worked with other funders in the past, and we’ve learned and achieved a lot together. 

Our £11.5m Building Connections Fund helped to fund the launch of the Belong Collective and National Youth Partnership as well as this evaluation from NPC. Our £5m #iwill Fund continues to share learning.
