Housing Associations' Charitable Trust (Hact)

Funding: £92,761 grant over six months. Funding approved in 2017.

What is being funded: A technical toolkit that collates all the documentation required to develop a community-led housing scheme.

Why we are funding this project: To provide local authorities in England and Wales with the technical information and guidance they need to promote, support and deliver community-led housing schemes.

Strategic purpose: To deliver better access to information, support, advice and technical expertise that is needed to progress a community-led housing scheme.

Project summary: Hact is creating a technical toolkit of materials that will bring together, for the first time, all the specialist documentation required to develop a community-led housing scheme into one place. It will involve the identification, collation and the production of new materials. This toolkit is targeted at professionals in local authorities who are typically working in legal, finance and planning departments and who play a critical role in enabling community-led housing schemes. The toolkit will provide them with the knowledge to engage with the community-led housing sector, by assisting in the development and delivery of community-led housing schemes.

Hact is also receiving funding from LandAid and Ecology Building Society for this project.
