We are a relatively new housing co-op in Sheffield, since 2015. In our house, costs and responsibilities are shared and we run on co-operative principles. We are a mainly vegetarian and vegan-friendly household who share cooking and costs of food, and grow some food together. We are striving to live sustainably and support our members to work for peace and social change. We are a member of the Radical Routes network. If you are interested in knowing more about us get in touch by email.

Share Instead is currently looking for new members

Share Instead is looking for new members to join our 5 person co-op. Our supportive community shares a large, cosy house in Sheffield, which we manage co-operatively. We are a member of Radical Routes and aim to create a place where we can live securely, affordably and gently, working for social change. We need new members keen to learn and share skills while helping with the development of the co-op over at least a couple of years. Sorry, our limited space means we aren’t able to accommodate children. Contact us for more details: shareinstead@gmail.com
