BSHF - Community-led housing to the rescue?

Building and Social Housing Foundation (BSHF) Director David Ireland prepares to speak in Parliament on Tuesday 26 January in relation to the launch of a new report from the Smith Institute. "In the UK policies designed to help do not look likely to cope. ‘Starter homes’ for new buyers will be unaffordable in more than 58 per cent of local authorities. The market does not look able to provide housing to meet everyone’s needs. With a perspective across the world and across time community-led housing looks less and less niche and more and more like the norm. It’s the UK’s developer led housing model that begins to look like the exception.”

The Building and Social Housing Foundation (BSHF) is working to join the dots and bring people together to address many of the recommendations in the Smith Institute report. Through a 2 year project, funded by the Nationwide Foundation, to promote community-led housing and support greater collaboration across the movement. Aiming to: increase awareness and understanding about community-led housing, support collaboration between organisations which provide support and advice for new community-led houses, strengthen the influence of the community-led housing movement
