About us

Somerset Co-operative Services is a Co-operative Development Body: we are members of the national CDB network, and of The Development Co-op.

We are a co-operative of service users - if you are a client of ours or a co-op based in the South West, you are entitled to join as a full member. Whether you are a member, a client, both or neither, you can give us feedback on our work at any time here.

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.

Our members elect a committee at Annual General Meetings and are ultimately responsible for where we go in the future. See who our members are here.
