We are delighted to announce that The Glass-House and London Community Neighbourhood Co-operative (LCNC) are jointly working to increase the knowledge and understanding of community-led housing nationally.

Focusing on urban areas of high demand for housing, we will deliver a series of knowledge exchange activities in Spring 2016 including an event, a film and supporting materials that will be widely disseminated from April onwards.

This joint initiative builds on a long-standing relationship with LCNC, who have been involved in training, events and action research led by The Glass-House, as well as receiving hands-on support to explore their housing co-operative project.

Our knowledge exchange initiative is part of a wider programme to support the growth of affordable, community-led housing projects through greater understanding of the opportunities and a wider awareness of methods, resources and support. Coordinated by the Building and Social Housing Foundation (BSHF), it is funded by the Nationwide Foundation.
