Co-operatives in the Welsh Economy report
We will be publishing a series of reports looking at the economic impact of co-operatives as part of the International Year of Co-operatives.
To start the year we have commissioned a report into the role co-operatives play in the economy of Wales. The report is written by the Bevan Foundation and brings together the most up-to-date research about co-operatives in Wales for the first time to examine their current impact and potential.
