SolidFund: Growing the UK Cooperative Economy

SolidFund is a grassroots commonwealth fund for worker co-op members. John Atherton talks about their aspirations and operations, and how using Loomio is helping them build the worker cooperative econoomy in the UK.

Our vision is to grow a thriving network of worker co-ops in the UK. Individuals can put one pound a week into the fund and become a member. They get to vote with the other members on what we do with their money. This could be subsidising events, supporting members to visit each other, providing support to each other, developing new materials, or projects to promote worker cooperation.
