I’m a co-operative and social enterprise advisor and have delivered one-to-one support, advice and training to hundreds of existing organisations and individuals wishing to establish new organisations since 1998.
In addition to supporting other people’s co-ops and social enterprises, I’ve been doing it myself which has informed much of my practice. I have been a Director of worker co-ops, regional co-operative support bodies, a Housing Co-operative (which was also Registered Social Landlord), a Credit Union, a Community Benefit Society, a multi-stakeholder CIC, several food co-ops and several music collectives.
I’m a firm believer in the propaganda of the deed!
My specialisms include:
I hold a L5 Certificate in Social Enterprise Support and a Certificate in Training Practice.
I am a Licensed Community Shares Practitioner
I also hold Professional Indemnity and Public Liability insurance.
