Places needing Members

Communities vary widely in their capacity to host guests during periods when they are not looking for new members. So don't be surprised if a request to visit is turned down. However, the communities listed below have said that they are currently looking for new members so, generally while that need remains, they will also be the keenest on visitors who have a genuine interest.

North of England
Fireside Housing Co-op has spaces. One room would be suitable for a single person, and the other 2 rooms could suit a couple or a family as we really want to have more children in the Co-op. Our rent is £55/week per adult, plus bills and a contribution to our income-sharing pot (which pays insurance, water rates & internet costs). At present we are 11 adults and a 4 year old all busy doing our own things. We would like to have another child here too. (Some of our children grew into adults and stayed!) Our outside interests range from gardening to music to cycling to campaign work. If you are interested in living with us, please get in contact and we’ll send you more information. Initially we'll invite you for a cup of tea, a chance to meet a couple of us and see the place. If all goes well, we'll start the lengthier process of getting to know each other. This can take a while as it takes time for all 11 of us to get to know you, and vice versa, and our Co-op decision meetings are only monthly.

East Anglia
March 2020: Stop Press. We have cancelled all visits until further notice. We will continue to post out information packs though. We are always interested in meeting Potential Members and we would love enquires from energetic, enthusiastic, sociable people and young families. We live in an area of outstanding natural beauty in East Bergholt, famous for its links with John Constable. East Bergholt has good transport links and excellent primary and secondary schools within walking distance. Living spaces of all sizes become available at times. Potential members make several visits here over a period of time which is how we get to know each other. You have to buy into our community which means you must have capital (the amount depends on the size of space you buy). Small top up loans are occasionally available but not at the moment. Mortgages are not available. Send us a letter/email telling us all about yourselves to applicants@oldhall.org.uk and we will send you more information.
GL54 5AQ
South West England
We are currently looking for new members to join our community and have a two bedroom unit for sale. We are currently organising virtual tours and conversations, followed by a social-distanced tour where possible. We welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds and a wide range of ages. For more information about Postlip and the unit for sale, have a look at our website: http://www.postliphall.org.uk/units-for-sale.html We are a small community of eight families and individuals living in separate homes within a large Cotswold manor house. Our bit of the Postlip Valley holds a mainly Jacobean house, a medieval Tithe Barn, and the 12C Chapel of St James, in Gloucestershire. We do lots of things together, from growing organically and maintaining the house and grounds to running public events but we also have private lives.

The Midlands
Looking to find 2 more persons to live with us longer term. Ideally we are after people that are looking to find a communal home and will love the space we have as much as we do. Our set up may suit a couple with a younger child as we'd have a great space to grow up in and there the obvious synergy of us having a toddler. We intend to home school until he is 8. We have a single and double room available. If you are interested please contact us with info about you and why you are interested in our set up.
