About Us

The Federation is the peak representative body for co-operatives in New South Wales.

A co-operative is an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social and cultural needs and aspirations, through a jointly owned and democratically controlled enterprise.

If your organisation works in accordance with co-operative principles, please consider joining the Federation, so that we can strengthen the co-operative sector, to the benefit of everyone.

  • Represent and assist co-operatives and like entities in their relationships with government;

  • Facilitate and provide assistance and services, including the Co-operatives Conference every 18 months;

  • Promote public awareness and understanding of the significance of co-operative structures;

  • Promote the exchange of information amongst co-operative entities; and

  • Work with other co-operative organisations interstate and internationally.
