About this cause
As a housing co-operative, community is at the heart of what we do. We will deliver York’s first environmentally sustainable, mutually owned, co-housing community. In partnership with YorSpace, it will deliver much needed intermediate affordable housing, as York has some of the highest house and rental prices in the Yorkshire and Humber region. We will be helping those in housing need.
How this cause brings people in the community together
A common house is central to the principal of co-housing, providing a space for the residents to gather in. The common house would engender a sense of community. This space would encourage people to share skills, form friendships and provide a support network for those who feel alone, as well as support other groups looking to develop similar co-housing communities in York.
