The Worker Co-operative Solidarity Fund has started accepting subscriptions. Already, 150 members are putting in £1 per week each. We expect that number to double by Spring 2014 – a great start.
The purpose of the Fund is to underwrite co-learning activity and networks, strengthen worker co-operative organisation and culture.
