Are a new expression of public interest ownership
Mutuals are focussed on the services they exist to deliver, affording a direct relationship between service providers and users, rather than through public authority bureaucracies or private sector operators.
Build trust and confidence in service providers through participative ownership
By engaging staff and service users directly, mutuals provide a voice for all stakeholders, ensuring that services are co-produced and trusted by all.
Enable staff to reach their full potential
Employee owned mutuals deliver superior business performance because employees tend to be more entrepreneurial and committed to the company and its success.
