If we really want to be serious about changing business, we have to confront the fundamental structure of ownership. The term ‘democratic business’ is not about the promotion of a single model, but a description of the powers that can exist in almost any legal structure. A really simple test for any government, funder, or development body is to focus on the basic characteristics of business – who owns it? who benefits from its value? and who makes the decisions?
Stretford Public Hall is a multi-purpose venue, run by Friends of Stretford Public Hall, a charitable community benefit society and we operate on co-operative principles. Our aim is to create space for good things to happen in Stretford.
