What are the Future Prospects for Co-operatives?

28th January 2014

Date: Friday 7th February 2014
Time: 2pm to 4.30pm
Place: Sheffield Town Hall: Reception Rooms

Purpose

We want to stimulate discussion around what can co-ops offer for:

  1. Growing Economic Prospects across the Sheffield City Region,
  2. Creating New Job Opportunities for the SCR
  3. Contributing to the Social Renewal of the City Region “ We will also welcome feedback on what should be done to grow new opportunities through Co-operative ventures and initiatives and how the Local Enterprise Partnership can help this. The co-operative economy contributes £35.6 billion annually and has 13.5 million members. It has grown consistently throughout the worst economic crisis in living memory – 23% growth since 2008. But last year, the Co-op Bank fiascos made a huge dent in the co-operative reputation, values and public perceptions. This raises questions such as:
  • Can this growth continue? ………… So, what are the future prospects?
  • What do we want to achieve for Our City Region?
  • How can the LEP and other City Region & National players support this?
