Coalville CAN is a CBS -
A Community Benefit Society. And that's a type of
Co-operative, an organisation owned by it's members. As a CBS, we're committed to improving our local community.
While a CBS is still an enterprise, (ie, not a charity) profits don't go to a board of directors, or even the members. All excess funds are guaranteed to be reinvested into the community.
Anyone and everyone over 16 is welcome to become a member. Membership means you own a share of Coalville CAN, giving you the same say as any other member. You'll get to vote and decide on who's on our board of directors, how we reinvest our profits into the community, and any other big decisions we want to make sure we get right.

Our strength is our connectivity: In the diversity of partners we work with, and in the confidence that the answers lie in the people that live and work here.
