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.

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.

As we say in our profile, we are a close knit house of good friends who spend quite a bit of time together in the Stirchley community. Our activities locally include developing Stirchley co-operation along with neighbour housing and worker co-ops, engagement in the Industrial Workers of the World Union, community gardening with migrant communities, and various political reading groups. If that sounds like something you'd like to join us with, or have new ideas about how to practice radical social change in an urban environment, please get in touch! brumcoop@gmail.com

Do you want to live somewhere that is a home rather than just a house? Are you a mature and responsible person who can take initiative and enjoy the benefits of working together to make a place function for everyone? If you are vegetarian (or happy to live in a vegetarian home) and interested in living communally then you could be the right fit for The Nevill. The rent is £600/month and bills are £210/month which includes all utilities (wifi, electricity, gas, water, BT, TV license), food/drinks (except booze!) and consumables (cleaning products, washing liquid,loo roll etc...). Deposit of £600 is also required. The room is available from 1/12/18. We all share responsibility to cook, clean, shop etc... for the house and one another. We don't have rotas so want to live with people who can take responsibility to do what's needed. We're busy people, from various places and with broad interests (art, architecture, film, theatre, activism, football and the pub quiz!) who want to live in a friendly home, socialising, relaxing or having a rant with a cup of coffee/herbal tea or a glass of whiskey/wine/beer depending on the time of day. We share meals in the evenings whenever possible, taking turns to cook for each other. We meet people at least twice when filling rooms and have a 3 month probationary period to try and get the right fit. Please get in touch and tell us about yourself and your experiences and expectations of communal living if The Nevill sounds like a good fit for you!

We are a small, friendly, open minded community who have come together to live co-operatively and creatively. Co-operating challenges us to take account of others' needs and place our own needs in that context. This is at the heart of what we're about and the means by which we help each other to grow. We all value living ethically, with compassion and a spirit of generosity. We have a beautiful converted water mill and outbuildings, with 5 acres of land with woodland and a stream, in our own secluded valley. There is easy access to Llangollen - a vibrant, welcoming town in N E Wales which has good schools. We live in our own separate households but co-own and co-manage the co-op and share many resources. We have a two bedroomed home available to rent or by lending loan stock to the co-op. The rental cost is £585 pcm and there is a service charge of £200 pcm per adult (covering all bills, including council tax.) Much work has already been done to create the foundations of our community, it’s a great time to join us! If you’re interested, please get in touch and feel free to ask any questions.
