Dragons housing co-operative limited was established in May 2015 and we purchased our first and so far only property in August of the same year. As a fully mutual par value housing co-op we are managed by those tenants who are resident and paying rent. We were established using the Radical Routes model rules which we obtained via Catalyst Collective. We are also governed by the ethics and principles of permaculture design and the 7 principles of co-operation as set out by the Rochdale pioneers. Dragons is inspired by the work of Robert Owen and the co-operative movement worldwide.

Dragons Co-op is currently looking for new members

Thank you to everyone who enquired recently about new member opportunities. The place has now been filled. We are still keen to hear from people interested on working with us on future co-operative ventures. We also offer consultancy and free advice to people wanting to start their own co-ops or communities.
