Live Support

The Hive. Run in partnership with The Co-operative Bank, The Hive is a new business support programme designed for people wanting to start or grow a co-operatively run organisation.

It provides a mix of online resources, training, advice and peer mentoring to organisations and start-ups right across the co-operative sector, from renewables to retail, sports to social care.

The Hive is for organisations of all shapes and sizes - those running a co-op already who want to strengthen it, those at the early stages of starting-up a business, or those considering converting their organisation to co-operative or community ownership.

The Hive can help you build better co-operative businesses.
