    In support of my comment immediately above, the Wales Co-operative Centre is Wales’s national body for co-operatives, social enterprises and employee owned businesses. The Centre champions and strengthens co-operatives, mutuals, social enterprises, and employee owned businesses. As well as supporting social businesses, we develop and implement co-operative solutions to tackle poverty and promote inclusion. We do this through:

    • Support for social enterprise and co-operative business development and growth;
    • Facilitating access to joined-up financial advice and support services, including those offered by credit unions and the wider social enterprise sector;
    • Encouraging people to use digital technologies, and;
    • Supporting the development of co-operative housing initiatives in Wales.

    Our projects include

    • Social Business Wales provides intensive, one-to-one support to social businesses which have ambitions to grow and a viable business proposal.
    • Our Co-operative Housing project offers business support and advice to new and existing organisations looking to develop housing co-operative schemes.
    The goal of the project is to develop and stimulate demand for the co-operative housing approach throughout Wales.
    • Our Care to Co-operate project provides support for the development of social care co-operatives, consortia and social enterprises across Wales. It enables citizens and service providers to come together to develop a co-operative approach to the delivery of local social care and well-being services. This allows citizens to take a greater role in defining, designing and delivering local services.
    • Our Financial Inclusion Champions project works strategically with local authorities and third sector partners to embed financial inclusion into their everyday work, and provide training to frontline staff. This year the focus will be on further developing the Moneymadeclearwales.org website.
    • Our Your Money Your Home project aims to help tackle financial exclusion of Private Rented Sector (PRS) tenants in Wales, and to prepare people for the introduction of Universal Credit.
    • The Digital Communities Wales project helps to tackle digital exclusion by providing training, support and encouragement to organisations to help them support digitally excluded people.
