Giffard Park Housing Co-op

Giffard Park Housing Co-operative is entirely dependent on our own members for income and management and that is the responsibility you take on when you become a member.
Members of a Co-op need to have a genuine desire to have control over their own housing environment, along with a willingness to become involved and take on some of the day to day responsibilities.

Hamwic Housing Co-op

Hamwic Housing Co-operative has property mainly in the Portswood and Highfield area of Southampton and provides affordable rooms in shared and self-contained property to single adults with no live-in dependents, who are in housing need. Due to our size and limited resources, Hamwic cannot provide housing for people with special needs and we cannot offer any supported housing.

Quaggy Housing Co-op

Forming Community

We’re a group of four single adults in their 30s in the process of setting up a new housing co-op in south London, and are looking for new members! We’d describe ourselves as left-leaning, and most of us are involved in political or community activism. We’re setting up a housing co-op together as we enjoy shared living but don’t like the lack of control or security that having a private landlord inevitably entails!

Pilsdon at Malling Community

The Pilsdon at Malling Community is a community looking to provide a place of healing for those in need.
We rely on volunteers to make this possible and invite those who feel called to help in healing and to share the joys of community living, we are in a lovely part of Kent and are next door to a Anglican abbey of nuns.

Urban Community Experiment

Forming Community

In the light of the state of our society, in specific the housing crisis and living situation in London, we want to build an intentional community for like-minded people to live, create and evolve together. The 3 pillars of this community are commitment of time and energy of its members, common focus and inner work.

Cohousing Woodside

Forming Community

Cohousing Woodside will be a community of 30 households where at least one occupant per household is aged 55 years and over. The new-build homes in Muswell Hill,North London, (estimated completion date May 2017) will be owned on 999 year leases (no rentals). Our Development Plan may be seen on our website. There will be a common house and the opportunity to join in shared activities, including meals and gardening. Members will manage the common facilities, and all residents are invited to take part in the life of the community.

Still Green

Forming Community

We formed with the aim of creating a mixed-tenure senior cohousing scheme where we could live as sustainably as possible. We wanted warm, low energy and secure homes in a mutually supportive neighbourhood where we could stay engaged with the wider community. We see this as an exciting form of down-sizing (in no way is this a case of reluctantly retreating into a retirement complex because we are told we are becoming infirm…).

Oakfield Road Community

Oakfield Road Community is a small community (5 members) established about 18 years ago and centred simply around the tasks necessary for the upkeep of our house and the sharing of food (vegetarian) .

Skylark Housing Co-op

Skylark Housing Co-operative consits of seven adults and three dogs. On the 1st March 2013 we bought our semi-detached house. Its an ex-council house on the edge of the downs, in Bevendean. In our large garden our fig tree produces wonderfully and we grow some veg and herbs. Bevendean has a vibrant community scene with the first co-operative pub on a council estate opening soon, a plethora of other housing co-operatives, a community garden and a fruit and nut orchard in the works.
