Chorlton Coop Cluster
Connecting coops, members, community
Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham has launched a new Cooperative Commission:
The Commission wants to work with co-operatives to reduce inequality, improve education and employment and help the sector grow into other areas of the economy to make Greater Manchester the most co-operative region in the UK.
The commission will focus on where co-operatives can support the delivery of the Greater Manchester Strategy.
It identifies four particular opportunities:
However, evidence on other areas - for example social care, energy - will be welcomed by the commission.
Here in the Chorlton Coop Cluster, we'll be making a submission about the notion of a cooperative cluster - a place using cooperative approaches to fixing problems.
We'd love to hear from you about what you think.
Or you can make a submission to the GM Cooperative Commission directly here.
The Chorlton Coop Cluster aims to promote collaboration between members, stores and other cooperatives in Chorlton.
