Board and Staff

EMCLH is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company Ltd by Guarantee established since 2012.  We provide specialist advice, support and guidance to those that want to create community-led and community-owned affordable housing.

EMCLH is governed by a voluntary Board of Directors. Since 2012 we have employed a full time Facilitator to work with communities, landowners, local authorities and providers of affordable housing to bring forward community-led housing. In 2018 we increased our staff and can now offer our services across the whole of the East Midlands.
