we own it

We Own It

We want the UK to have high quality public services, owned by and accountable to the public.

Health, education, energy and water – are public goods that belong to all of us and they should be run publicly. Privatisation isn’t working; it’s time for public ownership.



Message from the Phone Co-op

Why Fairphone?

There are a number of reasons why you may like to consider buying a Fairphone instead of a conventional smartphone. In our opinion, the main reason is that Fairphone it’s the first handset produced by a Social Enterprise with total transparency in the production and supply chain. It’s made using conflict-free minerals and produced in a factory that ensures health and safety working conditions as well as decent wages to its workers. For full details you can visit the Fairphone website.

We’ve been trying Fairphone in our offices and we can confirm it’s as good a handset as any other smartphones in the market. We will be publishing a review very soon – but you can find lots of opinions by just typing “Fairphone” on your search engine – a full list of specs is available here.

You can register your interest todayand we’ll come back to you when it’s available.
