Getting it Built!
Do you want to do something about the housing (or lack of) in your community? Are you already setting up a Cohousing, Self Help, Community Land Trust, Self-Build or Cooperative housing project? Then these authoritative regional events on community-led housing are just for you.
Brought to you by Locality, the UK Cohousing Network and the National CLT Network, these regional events will tell you all you need to know about getting a project off the ground and will provide first stage support for applying to the Community Led Project Support Funding programme, a new Government start-up fund of £17 million for budding community developers. The events are free of charge.
Who should attend?
Individuals or community groups who want to develop community-led housing, including Cohousing Groups, Community Land Trusts, Cooperatives, Development Trusts, Self-Help Housing groups, Neigbbourhood Planning groups and Group Self-builders.
What will I learn?
You will be both inspired by and learn from community-led housing organisations that have already been there and done that as well as technical experts. Topics include:
- Inspiring case studies from across the country
- How to use the new Community Led Project Support Funding
- Expert masterclasses on governance, legal issues, planning and land acquisition, partnerships, funding and finance and the different community-led housing models
- Sources of further advice and funding for aspiring community groups
