Collaborative Housing

Community First Oxfordshire hosts the support service for community-led housing groups in the Thames Valley- Collaborative Housing. We are grateful to all five Oxfordshire Local Authorities (Cherwell, West Oxfordshire, South Oxfordshire, and Vale of the White Horse District Councils and Oxfordshire County Council), which are part-funding the work of the Hub.

We think communities themselves are best placed to identify their local housing needs. From co-housing and community land trusts to co-operative and self-help housing, we support all kinds of community-led approaches. We provide hands-on advice, from exploring the possibilities through to the practicalities of funding, design, and planning.

What is Community-led housing?

Co-housing, community land trusts, co-operative and self-help housing are different examples of community-led housing. We support all of them. The benefits of these approaches are many, from genuinely affordable homes to more cohesive communities, improved well-being and tackling the climate emergency.
