We are a workers’ co-op committed to supporting the development of co-operatives, collectives and community-led housing

Our aim

Contributing to fostering a societal transformation away from oppression, competition, inequalities and environmental destruction.

Our values

We believe in helping people take control of their housing, work and lives through co-operation, common ownership and democratic decision making. We are working with other groups that are aligned with this value as part of Radical Routes, a national mutual-aid network of co-operatives working towards positive social and ecological change.

As a co-op we work according to the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equity, and solidarity. In the tradition of their founders, co-operative members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others.
