People needing Communal Places

Here is just one message on our noticeboard intended for individuals or families who would like to join an existing group. If you're wanting to place a message or reply to one that's already posted then you must either register or sign in. We restrict noticeboard messages to one per person at any time and your message is part of your profile (click "Your account" then the Edit tab). But before you proceed any further we would urge you to take a look here at communities that are currently looking for new members. Don't fool yourself into thinking that those places will be endlessly checking out People needing Communal Places and are, consequently, likely to approach you. Communities rarely do head-hunting and, in fact, they'll probably think far more highly of you if you take the initiative and make a direct approach to them. You should also be aware that there are scarcely any communities where people can live without making any financial input. Offers of work in exchange for a money-free life will most likely be ignored - most members of communities work their butts off for the place where they live AND pay to live there as well!

Hardworking, experienced community resident seeks place

I am a singleton looking for a place, preferably, where I can work for my keep and for food (if not, a very low cost and simple place to live). I have spent years working, living, and volunteering in intentional communities across the UK in a variety of roles – the dynamics of community living are cherished by me. I can cook simple food, housekeep, garden (permaculture background), and I have also worked in administration and fundraising. I have chosen to leave the community I am currently staying with because it is going through some quite turbulent upheavals. Preferably, I will look to a new community, or move onto pastures new, by mid July 2017. I am looking for a community, or an individual or family, who can express goodwill towards me and somewhere to stay. Recently I have gone through a series of difficult life-situations and would respond well to simple kindness. I have a background in the arts, in music and writing - perhaps we can share some passions. Also open to staying in a shorter term situation just long enough to 'find my feet' and move on, if commitment is an issue. I can provide CV and references.
