The Society is an independent voluntary organisation, registered as a charity, based in the UK. It welcomes, into membership, co-operative members, employees, managers, specialist practitioners, academics and others who share an interest in the UK and World Co-operative Movement.

We seek to advance the education of members and the public on all aspects of the Co-operative Movement, co-operative forms of structure, and, in particular to commission, identify, and publish research on the Co-operative Movement, and the exchange of information and experience on Co-operative study and Research.

Since its inauguration in the 1960s, the Society has produced a regular Journal, and held a yearly Conference, bringing together academics and Co-operative practitioners to discuss issues of interest.
