Once you’ve decided to develop a community led housing project we would recommend that you speak to people who have already done it. Read case studies, gather as much information about the different options and even visit schemes and projects. A lot of community led schemes have open days and can provide valuable opportunities to meet the people behind the project, talk to the residents and gain knowledge from their lived experience. We can connect you with other schemes from around the country so contact us to make a connection or enquiry. There are a number of ways to get in touch below.
As a hub we regularly run workshops on the different aspects of community led housing, but our series ‘Communities Building Homes’ is a great starting point. Find out more about our workshops and events.
How to access our support
Our hub is here to support you right from the start. You can access our support at any point along the process. However we would recommend coming to us from the start, so we can take a holistic view of your project and enable you to create the correct scheme for you and your community.
If you don’t have a project in mind and you would simply like to understand more about community led housing, then please do get in touch for a chat and we can signpost you to resources and other groups or talk to you about the options available.
To help us establish what support you need and where we can help, please fill in our ‘health check’ questionnaire. Please complete the questions as thoroughly as you can but don’t worry if you don’t have all the answers – that’s why we’re here. This form will give us a really good overview of where you are with the project and where we need to get you to.
Once you have submitted your answers a member of the hub will contact you to have a chat about the project and how we can help you progress. If you have any problems completing the form, or would like to receive it in a different format, please email us.
