Tower Hamlets Co-operatives Forum
Tower Hamlets Co-operatives Forum brings co-op values and principles into practice – The Forum will take an ideological approach rather than that of a “business lobbyist”, which, in current times, steers co-ops into conflict mode – (risking midway privatisation of public services)… We want positively co-operative not negatively competitive.
At the same time the Forum brings together all co-operatives working in Tower Hamlets under the Industrial Common Ownership umbrella to develop the concept of sharing, common ownership and the equitable distribution of wealth.
- Social responsibility – co-ops encourage people to take responsibility for their own community, and work together to improve it.
- Caring for others – co-ops regularly fund charities and local community groups from the profits of their businesses.
