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 cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
