We're a group of entrepreneurs, co-operators, activists and changemakers, looking to engage our community in the upper Calder Valley to co-create our next economy.

Have you got an idea for a project that will build resilient and sustainable livelihoods? Do you want to take control of an important local asset and run it for the benefit of your community? We’re giving you the opportunity to kickstart or strengthen your project. We can host the finances of your project until you decide to have a formal structure and bank account. We can also hold grants and respond to funding requests.

Our mission is foster an economy of mutual self-help between the existing and new enterprise – a solidarity economy. Calderdale has a proud history of co-operation and co-operative businesses. It already has the greatest concentration of Co-ops in the UK and they can act as a catalyst to kickstart other social enterprises into being and help them grow.
