Today, along with Co-operatives across the UK, we are celebrating a truly landmark moment as the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act (2014) comes into force.
The Act cleans up 50 years of legislation around Co-operative businesses, fulfilling a promise made two years ago by Prime Minister David Cameron to make it easier to run different and more ethical forms of business.
It follows years of Co-operatives UK campaigning, and while this is an opportunity to thank the government for delivering on manifesto promises, it is also an opportunity to talk about what should come next.
Join @CooperativesUK on Twitter today to thank @Number10gov for delivering on their promise.
