Peer to peer learning event in Leeds

On the 20th June we attended a peer-to-peer learning event in Leeds, sponsored by Community Led Homes, which is an umbrella of a few different groups which are helping people with their own housing projects:

  • The Confederation of Co-operative Housing (CCH)
  • The UK Cohousing Network
  • Locality
  • The National Community Land Trust Network

There were opportunities to talk with people from other groups around the country, including a couple from the West Midlands.

There were some great sessions, including one on funding streams that are available to projects in various phases of their development. I also attended a session which gave us some clues on how to write a succinct but detailed-enough business plan.

Cohousing West Midlands is (surprise) a cohousing project for the West Midlands! Cohousing is where everyone has their own front door, but there's also a community house for weekly shared meals and activities, and other shared spaces. More than a Housing Association, and less than a co-op!
