The Co-operative Party has an electoral agreement with Labour which enables candidates to stand as Labour and Co-operative representatives in General, European and Local elections.

It covers a wide range of businesses and services to meet diverse economic, social and cultural needs. From food production and retailing to banking and financial services, co-operation in the 21st century has moved into areas as diverse as housing and care provision and leisure and sport.
Unlike their capitalist competitors, co-operatives are driven by more than the pursuit of profit. Whilst they strive to be successful co-operative businesses, they are run according to a set of values and principles and are grounded in the communities they serve.
