To increase employability and alleviate financial hardships upon children and families in Bristol.


Cooperative is an employment agency that is charitable in law, and supports its members to fight for better wages and working conditions. We provide a full array of employment and training related services for workers, youth and businesses.

WE began out of the desire to contribute to the St. Paul’s community, and we understand the need in the inner suburbs of Bristol, for an employment agency that fills a void left by other agencies.

Thousands of people in Bristol are not in employment and we need your help to tap their potential and build their confidence. In the process we will have identified factors that will help increase social inclusion in Bristol. 

The-Society needs funds for: Premises | Recruiting | Operational costs
