Luckily we have been able to establish some great contacts throughout this project. However, I can imagine there will be times when someone has a great idea for a cooperative, but cannot find the resources they need to help drive it forward. A lot of the time, the contacts you make put you onto other contacts, who put you onto even another contact, and that person is the one who is able to help you. We have been very fortunate that the National Union of Workers
(NUW) was able to bring together a whole army of contacts with it, or I fear we would have a much different story at this stage.
