Cope & Associates Office


We understand that giving you one to one guidance and
support all year round when it comes to the financials,
will help give you the space to create and focus on the
trade you love.

Lauren Cope started Cope & Associates knowing that there was a gap in the market - an accountancy practice focusing on heart led client support and communication. We ensure that our clients are listened to, communicated with and supported throughout the year, not just once a year.


If you would like to work with us, but don't see the service you require, do get in touch. We would be happy to discuss your requirements either at our Congleton office, over the phone or on Zoom.

Lauren Cope

I have worked within accountancy practices for well over a decade.

During those 12+ years, I have met the most incredible business owners, and have had the pleasure of being a part of their journey into entrepreneurship. 

After seeing the need for more compassion and heart within the Accountancy industry, especially for creatives, Cope & Associates was born. 

Our amazing team are friendly, compassionate but above all completely supportive, however we can help you, we will -
