The Foster Care Co-operative is taking part in Co-operatives United in Manchester between 29th October and 2nd November.
This conference and celebration of all things 'co-operative' is the global culmination of the United Nations International Year of Co-operatives.
Manchester is the birthplace of the global co-operative movement and home to The Co-operative Group, one of the largest co-operative businesses in the world.
The event is being hosted by three organisations:
- The International Co-operative Alliance, the voice of the global co-operative movement;
- The Co-operative Group, the largest mutual business in the UK;
- Co-operatives UK, the trade association for co-operative businesses.
The programme of major conferences and forums, exhibitions, workshops and a fringe festival of film, food and visits, allows delegates and visitors to design their own package.
