To anybody in the UK who's interested in improving the quality of #SocialCare, consider supporting Equal Care Co-op's crowdfunder campaign.
They've got a very cool multi-stakeholder #cooperative structure and are also a #PlatformCoop. @LeoSammallahti and I spent an hour yesterday talking to Emma, one of the co-founders and I was quite impressed by her radical perspectives on care work and the value of cooperatives for changing power dynamics in the sector.
social.coop is a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
