Who we are
Co-operative & Community Finance is the trading name of the ICOF family of businesses.
Industrial Common Ownership Finance Ltd (ICOF) was set up in 1973 and we have since created a number of related funds, all of which are democratically owned and controlled by the members. We provide sympathetic loan finance to help people take control of their economic lives and create social benefit.
Our mission is to make the right finance available, at the right time,
for co-operative enterprises in the UK.
We are looking for new Trustees that have energy and skills and experience across from the co-operative, social economy and community business sectors.
Individuals with enterprise, small business or co-op practitioner/ adviser experience would be particularly welcome, as well as individuals with expertise in accountancy and finance, to help us fill skills gaps on our existing board. We will consider anyone with a particular interest in Co-ops, Employee Ownership, Community Wealth Building, Community Business and individuals keen to help us build a fairer future in local communities.
As well as nonspecific Trustee/ Director roles we are also looking for individuals who would be interested in potentially becoming a future Chairperson. And would also very much like to hear from women and individuals of Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic heritage to help us further improve the equality and diversity of our board.
