Redcurrant is an officially registered fully mutual housing co-operative (registration number 4414). Having started off looking for a property in Edinburgh, after 3 years we moved our search to Glasgow. We are currently in the process of securing a home there.

We seek to provide affordable and secure housing for our members; a home where they can feel safe and flourish as individuals and collectively.

Our meetings are twice a month, usually on a weekday night. We also use an online collaboration platform to discuss pressing matters in between as well as for random chatter and keeping track of future plans and To Dos.
