Social Co-operatives: A New Model of Social Care in Wales

Newport Co-operators and Wales Progressive Co-operators, which is a branch of the National Federation of Progressive Co-operators, both believe that social care co-operatives are an important part of the mix because the co-operative model champions ethical values and principles as well as economic success through self-reliance. (Some  care co-operatives listed here.)

They have published Social Co-operatives: A New Model of Social Care in Wales and invite readers to read and directly comment on their document, paragraph by paragraph, by going to http://progressive-cooperators.org.uk/social-care-coop. David Smith advises that it will be easier if you register first by clicking on the red Register button, and then log-in at the site.
