The BCCM is the peak body for co-operatives and mutuals in Australia.
We unite these businesses with the common objective of increasing awareness of co-operatives and mutuals and the important contribution they make to the economy and community life.
We are a powerful and informed voice in the business community working to remove the barriers to fair competition and improving the business environment for all co-operatives and mutuals.
Our national network of member-owned businesses fosters innovation and business relationships in the sector. Our members believe that co-operatives and mutuals help to build a more inclusive, prosperous and sustainable Australia.
The BCCM was formed in 2013 as a legacy of the United Nations International Year of Co-operatives. As Australia’s first peak body for co-operatives and mutuals in all industries we are proud of how far we come in our short history. Our strategy of uniting the sector has delivered outstanding results for all Australian co-ops and mutuals.
