Co-operative Development Scotland (CDS) is the arm of Scotland’s enterprise agencies that supports company growth through employee ownership and co-operative business models.

We provide support to companies and community groups who want to adopt employee ownership or co-operative business models such as consortium and community co-operatives. 

We help businesses and community enterprises grow by offering a range of advice and services, including free masterclasses and onetoone support. We also raise awareness of the benefits of employee ownership and business collaboration through the media and events.
