What we do

For people creating housing together

Home is more than just a roof over your head. Housing is also about creating a place of safety and comfort within a strong community.

Our aim is to help people unite in the East of England, and allow them to make affordable homes that support local people.

We increase supply for new homes through community-led housing projects. With our expertise, support and funding we can bring these to life.

Community-led housing comes in many forms, so there is no one standard approach.

Whether you are exploring community land trusts or co-operative projects, we can help you create your long term homes.
We give you power over how you want to live.

You will play a key role in solving local problems by creating affordable homes and strong communities.
These aims are difficult to reach through common housing streams.

We will provide a ‘one stop shop’ so that communities in East Anglia understand the opportunities they have.

Together we can ensure a smooth working partnership to build new homes for those with local incomes.
Such homes are built to high standards of energy efficiency, using new and progressive building methods.

We do housing differently

There is a construction crisis currently taking place across the country, so we cannot dispute the need for extra homes.

New homes are often built by private developers or local authorities for sale, rent and part-ownership through a select few methods.

But community-led homes offer a different path.

We work with people who want to ensure there is always fairly-priced housing in their area.

Our role is to help inform, educate, inspire and promote joint projects that will survive for years to come.

Whatever your role in that process – investor, partner, promoter, leader– we have information ready to help you become part of something special.



We provide a selection of support services for communities in the East of England, so they
can benefit from the opportunities community-led housing provides.

We are working with local authorities and councils to provide training and resources. We will also source funding for local schemes.
