Gareth Nash

Location: England, Lancashire, Blackpool Speciality: Third Sector, Prison Service

Gareth is a founding director of Co-operative and Mutual Solutions (CMS) and has been working with co-operative and social enterprises for over 20 years.

CMS is a worker co-operative with a passion for values based, member led businesses. The directors are active in their local communities and in the co-operative movement regionally and nationally.

Gareth works with new start businesses, those that are established and want to grow and groups of people in transformation/looking to transfer.

He has experience of supporting communities take over a local service; workers purchase the business they work for (from the owner), public sector workers transfer into a co-op or mutual and groups of small businesses to collaborate (so that they can be bigger than they are individually).

Gareth can help you with business and financial planning including:

-market research


-designing a new organisation

-legal and governance structures

-becoming investment ready particularly (but not solely) if you are thinking of raising finance through a community share issue

-setting up effective systems.

A man worth contacting.
