Our vision is a thriving solidarity economy for the UK – an economic system that has the values of democracy, social justice, ecological sustainability, and co-operation in its DNA.

Our mission is to support the growth of the solidarity economy by educating, empowering and inspiring communities who are committed to economic and social justice and giving them the confidence to create, join or support initiatives that live and breathe these values.

We do this by sharing the huge amount of knowledge and experience that exists from solidarity economy movements around the world; by running projects that deliver sustainable community development, economic democracy, social justice and community ownership in regions of the UK, and by collaborating with local, national and international partners on a wide range of activity.


We’re a multi-stakeholder co-operative based in Oxford and we strive to embody the values of the solidarity economy in everything we do. Our membership is open to anybody involved in one or more of our current projects or activity.
