Equal Care Co-op are a multi-stakeholder co-operative. Voting rights sit with their key beneficiaries, the givers and receivers of care and support and their friends and families. The organisation works in a co-designed way and has flat, sociocratic management structures. The direction and activities of the organisation are led by the people living the realities of social care.
By establishing and facilitating circles of support through their platform co-operative, Equal Care Co-op brings benefits to everyone involved in the relationship between givers and receivers of support. People on both sides of the care and support relationship are connected and empowered to be self-managing and an abundance of local care and support is created.
