Co-opportunities: chance to learn from West Yorkshire successes

All copy sourced via Stir to Action.

To mark Co-op Fortnight 2024 – an annual campaign that celebrates co‑operatives as a different way to do business – Stir to Action in partnership with Co-operatives UK are inviting people to come along to learn from an exciting range of co-operatives across West Yorkshire. 

From 21st June to 4th July, there's something inspiring for everyone – from bakeries and town halls to major wholefood sellers.

Join us at these local sites to meet the founders and workers and find out about how they got started, their growth model, where they get business support, how they make decisions as a democratic business, their routes to finance, and how they connect their business model to social purpose.

If you’re a new business looking for inspiration, an existing co-op looking to grow, work for local government or a community infrastructure body and are keen to know more about local community and democratically run businesses, explore the study visit programme options below and register your place.

Where can you visit?

*All visits are 11am to 1pm and come with a free lunch.

Business for Good West Yorkshire is led by TSL Kirklees and delivered by a partnership of local providers - Participate Projects, Voluntary Action Leeds, SEE Ahead, Co-op Culture and Stir to Action, and is supported by national organisations Co-operatives UK and School for Social Entrepreneurs. This project is funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
