About us

At The Midcounties Co-operative we place a great importance on supporting the communities we serve, because it’s something that matters to our members, our customers and our colleagues.

Community Matters

Concern for the community is one of the co-operative principles on which we base our business and we look to give something back to our communities in a number of ways.

 From volunteering at schools and local charities to fundraising for our charity partner, and donating a share of our profits back to organisations that need our support, there are so many ways we are engaging with the people we serve.

Our work within the community has been recognised by a number of national bodies and we’ve received many awards. Take a look through this section to find out more about what we do, and how we could help your organisation.

Regional Community Overview

Regional Communities' is a focussed, measured approach to supporting communitieis in an identified geographical location where the society has a strong trading presence. Measured, with clear KPIs, Regional Communities is a programme that puts Midcountieis at the very heart of the local life, ensuring that we are truly community owned, community led, and community rewarding.

Our colleagues and members work together to support local community projects that matter to those who work, live and learn in the local community.

The Society was reaccredited for the second time with the fair tax mark in 2016 , which certifies that we pay the right amount of tax in the right place at the right time.

This Tax Charter represents a formalisation of our approach on tax matters and reflects our outlook and values.Within the overall framework set by the Charter, we believe it is fair that we look for ways to mitigate the Society’s tax bill to ensure we do not pay more tax than we need to.  However, our approach will always be based on a recognition that as a values led and ethical organisation we should pay the taxes we are due to pay and we should not engage in aggressive tax avoidance schemes, even if legal.
