Sources of help for setting-up co-ops

Those seeking help with setting-up or joining specific types of self-help enterprise are recommended to search the internet for your national associations using the type of enterprise that is of interest to you.  For example, cooperatives (or co-operatives), credit unions, friendly societies, building societies, mutual insurers, supporters’ trusts, etc.  Search also, using the activities and the types of co-ops, such as agricultural/ farmers, consumers, workers, housing, banks, community, transport, artists.
