“The social economy is a fundamental characteristic of mutual insurers. It is in their DNA”. In her 28th April presentation to the Social Economy Europe/Act 4 Social EU Coalition event entitled “Social Economy’s participation in Social Dialogue” AMICE’s Secretary General Sarah Goddard emphasised the strong links between the activities of European mutual and cooperatives and the values of social economy. Solidarity is key to our model. The ecosystem of mutuals/cooperatives benefit the group, she said.

 

She also highlighted some of the work of mutual/cooperative during the current COVID-19 crisis. Our members have delivered: delivered support to children for remote learning; support to working from home; support to employment of medical staff.
