Summary :

Working alone can be aspirational, but it can also be lonely and anxious. There is an extraordinary opportunity for new co-operative solutions for self-employed people, giving them the freedom of freelancing with the muscle of mutuality.”

Cooperatives UK have just released an in depth report full of examples of best practices for co-operatives collaborating to meet the needs of a growing class of dispossessed workers – over 70% of whom in the UK are in poverty.
