Mutuo works to improve the business environment for the co-operative and mutual sector by:
- Communicating their priorities to decision makers
- Acting as an advocate with politicians and regulators
- Building links between mutual business leaders
- Developing new mutual businesses
Mutuo works with some of the largest mutual businesses in the world, to maximise their impact on the public policy agenda.
We specialise in the deployment of policy-led public affairs activities in order to build deeper relationships with individuals in public authorities. This has involved Mutuo in a wide range of public policy activities aimed at building long term support for mutuals among politicians, government officials and regulators.
The tangible results of this have been the development of a range of new mutual business sectors in education, health and social housing, plus supporter trusts at hundreds of professional sports clubs. For long established mutuals, the benefits have included updated legislation, improvements in relationships with regulators and new regimes for mutuals, as well as strong political support across all parties for the mutual business model.
