Chorlton’s a place that’s famous for its creativity, its independent culture and its community spirit. This is where people care: there are many groups and projects working to make Chorlton a better place for all. 

The purpose of Chorlton Community Cooperative is simple. We help join the dots – and by working together, we get more done. Proudly independent, Chorlton Community Cooperative is run by and for its members. And membership is open to all.

Like all cooperatives, we hold true to the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. 

We are Chorlton people, working with Chorlton people to make positive change.
