We were featured in The Times yesterday (7th June). The article is about the contribution made to the UK economy by co-operative businesses and organisations. It also highlights the amount of co-op members there currently are in the UK.
The section we're featured in reads:
Ian Brazier is executive director of The Foster Care Co-operative, based in Worcestershire, which has 350 members across the country. He was not surprised that the co-operative model was expanding, he said, because his company offers flexibility, making the value-based model even more attractive to employees.
"The values are built in," he said. "A co-op is in many ways founded on the principle of we are all working together for each other, and the point I make to our members when we travel around the country is that they don't work for me - I work for them. It's my job to facilitate for them their skills for the co-op."
