A mutual could be the right business model for your community investment work

Mutual organisations are those where the employees own a share in and control an organisation.

This business model is becoming a popular option in delivering public services. Mutuals can be fully owned by the employees, or partially owned as cooperatives or social enterprises.

The Cabinet Office has drawn up some information and has a task force to advise emergent organisations. If you are interested in exploring this option, more information is available on the Cabinet Office Mutuals website or contacting the cabinet office team directly.
