for communities.

A locally powered solution, involving ordinary people taking positive action to build and manage homes for their own community.

Our vision

You don’t need to be a housing professional, an architect or a builder. You can be the change your local community needs.

Community led housing can be for people on a range of incomes, specific groups of people, for those who want to rent or buy and covers new build and refurbishments of existing buildings.

Community led housing is led by community participation and engagement takes place throughout the process. The housing is owned, managed or stewarded by the community through a variety of means and, perhaps most importantly, the development is of true benefit to the geographical or intentional community. These benefits are legally held in perpetuity.
