Access to Finance for Co-ops

Guests: Tim Coomer, Co-operative and Community Finance

Understanding and accessing finance is one of the challenges our clients cite when setting up or growing their co-ops and is a key area where support is required. 

In this episode we are joined by Tim Coomer of Co-operative and Community Finance to discuss this topic in more detail. Tim is an expert in the field of co-op finances and in this episode will explain how investment can help co-ops grow, the challenges co-ops face in accessing finance and the changes to the funding and policy landscape that would help co-ops to continue to flourish. Stewart Macgregor from CDS will also share his insight from working with co-ops in Scotland.
