Auchinleck Housing Co-operative is a women’s co-op in the Newhaven area, on the north side of Edinburgh. We are currently 8 women – lesbian, bisexual and straight – ranging in age from 20s to 60s. We are an inclusive and trans/trans* friendly household.

The house is a three-storey Victorian semi-detached house, with front and back gardens, two living rooms and a spare bedroom for guests.

We have communal dinners cooked from organic veg boxes and produce from our garden. Decisions are made at meetings which we hold once or twice a month, the aim is to share equal responsibility for cleaning, maintenance, accounts, gardening, admin etc.

We are not currently seeking any new members, but we will advertise here and on Gumtree when spaces become available.
