About this event
Are you the leader of a community organisation in West of England and interested in how community-led housing (CLH) could offer ordinary people control of their own homes, lives and communities?
Join us to understand how people in organisations, just like yours have learnt from doing it, hear about the key challenges and opportunities within the available funding streams, come away with a better of understanding of how best to set up your own community-led housing project and how to access funding and support to bring your project to fruition.
After the event, you can apply to be part of a smaller 2-step action learning group to develop your project further.
Commissioned by CLHWest. Bringing community organisations together to explore the opportunities that exist within community led housing sector and protecting community assets in perpetuity. By invitation only. Contact Paul Hassan if you’d like to attend.
