We are a group of 7 big people and one small one who have set up a housing co-operative in Swansea. We started getting together to talk about the idea in March 2010, and have been working on it ever since. We finally got the keys to our Very Own House on 30th May 2012.
We have had an offer accepted on a second house and are looking for 6 new members. It’s just across the road, in a very central, urban location and 5 minutes stroll from the town centre. We have a cat (moving to the second house) and a dog (staying put). Please contact us if you are interested.
We are part of the Radical Routes network, which offered a lot of help getting established, and which we work to support. Radical Routes has an amazing amount of collective experience, and offers skills to other people establishing co-ops and working for social change.
