Community First Oxfordshire is delighted to host a new support service for community-led housing groups in the Thames Valley- Collaborative Housing.
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.
