Community shares for co-operative development

Q: What's better than investing in a community co-operative?
A: Investing in a co-operative that supports and develops many more community co-ops.
Somerset Development Workers Co-op is the team that deliver advice and support work for Somerset Co-op Services CIC. They have been the backbone of the FEED project and have been involved in supporting many new co-ops both in Somerset and beyond. Now they have a chance to significantly step up activity, with opportunities from the EU, Big Potential, Power to Change, the Somerset Rules and new premises in Taunton. But it is going place huge demands on their financial resources - which is why an issue of community shares with EIS is essential.
