Midlands Co-operative Society's approach to business is guided by its vision to be the best consumer co-operative in the UK as well as being guided by Co-operative values and principles, and includes ‘concern for community’.
The Society’s member relations officers continue to educate and work with local health departments within their regions to raise awareness with community groups and schools about the importance of healthily lifestyles. These activities are noted in our annual report.
We will continue to provide grants to community groups through our Community Dividend fund, where 1% of our trading profits are given back to the communities in which we trade.
The selection committee will always consider, where appropriate, applications that promote healthy lifestyles.
