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
- 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.
