Our share offer

Posted by jdpuddephatt.

We want to help create 1000 affordable, sustainable, #peoplepoweredhomes in Leeds over the next ten years. We raised £360,000 through a community share offer to kickstart that mission.

The £360,000 we’ve raised will:

  • Fund the purchase of 16 permanently affordable flats on an eco-development in the centre of Leeds
  • Develop proposals for future projects to build more affordable homes

 

ptcThe independent trust Power to Change match-funded the first £100,000 raised through our community share offer, providing us with an excellent boost towards our target.
