Throughout the month of June, we’ll be out on the road and touring North Yorkshire and East Riding to raise awareness of community led housing in the region.
On 7 June we will be in Northallerton – come along and hear us talk about community led housing and how to be involved. We will introduce the hub and our services and look at examples of where community led housing has happened successfully around the country. You’ll also hear about live examples from a guest speaker.
During the sessions, you will learn about:
- Why community led housing is needed
- What it is
- You will see examples and case studies where housing has been developed
- What the hub can do to support you, if you wish to undertake a project.
Tom Johnston, founder trustee of Glendale Gateway Trust will be our guest speaker in Northallerton.
Tom will be speaking about how a community organisation can transform the local community in a rural area – from combatting isolation, to bringing in new services, homes and businesses to its residents. You can find out more about how Glendale Gateway Trust has been responsible for helping the community of Wooler flourish in this short video.
