The owners and drivers of our organisation are the highly skilled therapists and staff who work within it. This enables us to have an unmatched focus on the achievements of all people within our community of care.
As a cooperative community, Kudos exists to support and celebrate every child, young person and adult with a disability, from early intervention to ongoing therapy.
What is a Mutual?
A mutual is a group of people who come together to meet a common economic, cultural or social need.
Mutuals grew rapidly in the United Kingdom following the industrial revolution in the early nineteenth century. Known as ‘friendly societies’ they were committed to self-help in the welfare of working people. Cooperatives and mutuals now exist all around the world.
In Australia, the turnover of the top 100 Cooperative and Mutual Enterprises (CMEs) in 2018 was $31.9b and employment in CMEs accounted for around 1% of all employment in the country*. Mutuals and cooperatives provide meaningful jobs and social and economic empowerment for their members and their communities.
Kudos is a proud member of the Business Council for Cooperatives and Mutuals. Find out more about CMEs and the value of mutuals to their members, the community and the economy by visiting the BCCM website.
