Backing Community-Led Housing

Why we are backing community-led housing

Community-led housing schemes come from a variety of forms, shapes and sizes. They can build new homes, create homes in empty properties, protect existing decent, affordable homes and provide homes of all types of tenure.

Community-led organisations are really well placed both to challenge the threats to existing local homes for people in need, as well as to increase the supply of homes that meet the needs of local people. We know that although individual community-led housing schemes are often small, the energy and commitment of local people and organisations can create a big impact for the individuals and communities in which they work.

We firmly believe that their ideas and approaches should be shared and adapted across the UK, delivering change at scale and respecting different local circumstances.

Our work will strengthen, support and champion the growth of community-led housing, so that more people will benefit.
