Community Impact Index 2017

Discover how co-operatives impact the community through the Co-op News Impact Index. Over the past year, journalists have been examining the annual reports of co-operatives to look how much they give back to communities, whether that’s through community grants, volunteer hours or charity fundraising. We then compare the figures to what competitors report.

Thanks to Midcounties Co-operative for supporting the Index. It’s the largest regional co-operative in the UK with gross sales of more than £1bn. Community owned, community led and community rewarding, Midcounties works together to create a better, fairer world.
