Thanks to generous support from Power To Change (who also invested in our community share offer) we’ve established a community-led housing hub in Cross Green, on the outskirts of Leeds city centre, from which we are currently piloting a support service for emerging community-led housing projects in the Leeds City Region.
Throughout 2018 we will provide intensive support to at least three community-led housing groups that want to create permanently affordable, community-led housing. We know how challenging this can be – and we want to use our expertise to give them every chance of success.
Groups we’re currently supporting
Supporting others to create People Powered Homes – as well as building homes ourselves – is central to how we want to be involved in creating 1000 permanently affordable homes over the next ten years. Groups we are currently supporting include:
- Otley Community Land Trust - a group of people working on plans for community ownership for a range of assets in Otley – including permanently affordable housing.
- An emerging student housing co-op in Leeds – part of wider student housing coop movement across the UK
- Yorspace - a group of people developing plans for affordable, sustainable homes in York
- ShangriLeeds - working to create a co-housing community in Leeds
If you are exploring setting up a community-led housing project, and would be interested in us supporting you – please get in touch.
