The Welsh Co-operatives and Mutuals Commission – have your say

The Welsh Co-operatives and Mutuals Commission has published its report, which makes recommendations on growing and developing the co-operative and mutual economy in Wales, in order to create jobs and wealth.

The ‘Co-operatives and Mutuals Commission Wales Report 2014’was launched at Accommodation Furniture Solutions Ltd (AFS Ltd), Swansea. AFS Ltd is a worker co-operative that was formed with support from the Wales Co-operative Centre following the closure of the Remploy factories in 2012.

The report makes extensive recommendations on:

  • Education approaches and delivery
  • Business support and development
  • Financial support for co-operative development and employee owned businesses
  • Land and Assets
  • Procurement
  • Leadership and networking
  • Delivery mechanisms
