There’s an interesting event being held in Oxford later this month. It’s a workshop all around the creation and operation of mutuals.
The taster for the event on the Co-Operative Futures site says that with the upcoming ‘right to provide’ in the Localism Bill, the political commitment for the creation of mutuals to run local services and the success of the government pathfinder schemes, mutuals are here to stay.
This workshop offers a chance to hear what a mutual actually is; to hear what is important to making a mutual successful and how it is different from other forms of enterprise.
It’s being held on Wednesday March 23rd, from 11.00-3.00 at the Kings Centre in Oxford.
