Membership is what makes The Co-operative Life special. TCL is co-owned by our employee members. This means that our members are shareholders with each member owning one share in TCL in line with the principle of one member – one vote!
If you are an employee at TCL and have successfully completed your 6 months probation period, you can apply to join now.

All our members can have a say and play a part in the decisions that affect our priorities and how we manage homes, deliver services and support communities. By working together we achieve more.

There is something for everyone whether you have a few minutes to spare to complete a survey, or read the newsletter or longer and you want to get more involved.


It's your membership and you can be involved as much or as little as you choose.
