Co-operative Registration & Development

In the last 17 years, catalyst collective has worked with over 200 housing co-operatives, about 75 worker co-ops, some charities, and a variety of different companies with co-operative aims.
Many successful social enterprises have been registered with the help of catalyst. Many people are now living without bosses or landlords, after setting up cooperatives to buy housing, or develop ethical businesses. Catalyst was set up specifically to help people create a cooperative life.

Registration of Housing Co-ops

A housing co-op is an Industrial and Provident Society, registered with the Financial Services Authority.
A minimum of three people are needed to form a housing co-op.
Radical Routes Limited (of which Catalyst is a member) is a ‘promoting body’ for housing co-operatives with the Registrar of Friendly Societies (part of the Financial Services Authority. This enables us to offer registration of fully mutual housing co-ops, acting on behalf of Radical Routes.

Registration using our model rules costs £375.00

Membership of Radical Routes is not necessary to make use of this service, although many co-ops who register through us do become RR members, or associates. You may find the network’s support for new co-ops is invaluable to you.

We recommend reading the How to Set Up A Housing Co-op book as your first step before registration.
