Working together for Chorlton

Welcome to Chorlton

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

The ethos of Chorlton Community Cooperative is simple: by working together, we get more done. Proudly independent, Chorlton Community Cooperative is run by and for its members. And membership will soon be 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 for positive change.

Have a look at our site to see what our friends and partners are already doing. Find out about what’s on, volunteering opportunities, news and other useful information about groups and projects. And if you have a group, project, news or an event you’d like to share, contact us.
