Early Stage Support

Locality’s Early Stage Support programme, offers expert mentoring and small grants to help affordable community-led housing projects get started.

This is a programme to help community groups in England in the critical early stages of their project. It provides help with everything from choosing a legal structure to funding guidance.

Nationwide Foundation are currently funding a two year programme to offer bespoke 1:1 support to 21 community-led housing groups. Groups from around the country are receiving one-to-one assistance from experienced sector professionals and there is also a small grant pot available to help with early stage costs.

Local Authorities have also commissioned this support programme to assist new, affordable community-led housing projects in the start-up phase of their projects.
