Collaboration between the Confederation of Co-operative Housing, Locality, the National Community Land Trust Network and UK Cohousing has been announced that will increase the provision of training, funding and practical support to community led housing groups, councils and developers.
A new national website has also been created – Community Led Homes – to support how community-led housing can become more of a mainstream housing option, and to inform projects and communities of what new and existing forms of support are available.
A series of new funding opportunities can be sourced through this national collaboration, including:
- Early Stage funding, for new and aspiring projects
- Funding for innovative community housing projects
- Funding for projects to consider becoming Registered Providers or Investment Partners
- Funds to develop a network of ‘Community hubs’ around the nation.
