Hello and welcome to Co-operative Web!


We build systems, web applications, mobile apps and content managed solutions in PHP, Java and .NET technologies.  We work with everything from legacy technology to the latest cutting edge tech, always building the best possible solution for every situation.


Whether you understand the technology and just want to talk geek with us, or have no idea and need someone to speak plain English to help you through the dizzying array of choices we’re here to help you.  Come in for a coffee and a chat and we’ll try our best to make sure you leave armed with the best information on the best solution tailored for you.


We are a different kind of company, one with an ethical view of the world.  We are a workers’ co-operative, owned and run by the people who work here and care passionately about our clients, our impact and our community.


Co-operative Web was set up in 2006 with the vision of being a better company, one that delivered great solutions while being fair to both customers and workers.

Our main focus is developing solutions.  Basically, we’re geeks for hire…  We love technology and our passion is finding ways to apply technology to real world problems.  It could be how to manage the data on the future stars of a football club or combining details on all incidents of injury involving water in the UK, it could be delivering mobile experiences to conference goers or booking transfers from an airport to your resort destination, it could be building the pixel perfect website from your design or supporting your internal legacy application.  We’ve done all of this and much more, and we just want to get involved and help as much as we can.

We work with many different types of businesses, from large multi-national banks to small social enterprises, from start-up businesses to design agencies.  We work completely from scratch, amending and supporting existing solutions (even those not designed by us!) and we’ve also got a few products that we sell.
