Somerset Co-operative Services is a Co-operative Development Body. Our mission is:
"to promote the application of international co-operative principles, to help people establish new co-operative and social enterprises and to enable social enterprises to work together to be financially, environmentally and socially sustainable. We aim to provide high quality services to our user members and secure, fairly rewarded work to our worker members."
We are also a Community Interest Company with co-operative rules. Because we are a CIC, our assets are protected and can only be used to achieve our mission - we don't distribute profits, nor can we be taken over, shut down, or turned into something radically different.
We are a co-operative of service users - if you are a client of ours, or a co-op that is or thinks it may soon be a client, you are entitled to join as a full member. See 'get involved' page. Our members elect a committee at Annual General Meetings and are ultimately responsible for where we go in the future.
