As has been the aim of the Zero-credit project, Zero-credit Ltd will seek to end debt stigma as a cooperative owned by individuals with experience of debt. We intend to trade in participatory research and development related to tackling social and financial exclusion.
Profits will create employment and training opportunities within the company as well as financing charitable and community projects, which fit the mission. In the first instance, Zero-credit will bid for grants and contracts related to social and financial exclusion. Thereafter, a second phase launch will invite businesses and organisations to subscribe to premium information services as well as offering incentives for bespoke commissions.
It's been a little bit manic trying to get the legal structures we were hoping for and there's a tad more to do on membership criteria, but we promise you more, very, very soon ;-)
