Dandelion Housing Co-op
Housing should be safe, good quality, affordable, sustainable and controlled by its residents. It should offer security of tenure, and be open to all without discrimination. We believe that housing co-operatives are the best way of achieving these goals.
Dandelion Housing Co-operative intends to join the hundreds of other housing co-operatives in the United Kingdom which provide housing, meeting all those criteria, for its members. In order to purchase some premises to realise that vision, we need to raise funds - this website is intended to provide information about the organisation and about housing co-operatives in general, and also as a point of contact where you can help get things up and running.
We have an opportunity not only to provide housing, and an alternative to the low standards and constant insecurity of private rented accommodation, but also to provide space for self-employment, support home education, and to build genuinely lasting communities.
Our vision involves providing a community for our members, with an emphasis on providing individual privacy but also communal areas, in the south west of England.
This group is not yet living together on site so some information may be aspirational rather than actual
