The Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies and Credit Unions Act 1965 is an Act of Parliament in the United Kingdom. It was enacted as Industrial and Provident Societies Act 1965 and will be renamed by section 2 of the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies and Credit Unions Act 2010 from the date at which that Act comes into force. Until that time it is officially still called the Industrial and Provident Societies Act 1965.

In January 2012 the UK Prime Minister, David Cameron announced a project to consolidate all the legislation applicable to industrial and provident societies. There is some uncertainty as to how far this development will address the problems with the legislation although it will provide some simplification.[1] In mid-2012 that project was still in its early stages.[2]

This legislation applies in Great Britain (England, Wales, and Scotland). Northern Ireland has its own very similar legislation. The 1965 and 1968 Acts also apply to Jersey and Guernsey.

The Acts of the UK Parliament likely to be consolidated include:
