May webinars: Different Types of Community-led Housing

Webinars

Last month we were really pleased to offer four webinars, as part of the Wessex Community Housing Hub, all about models of community-led housing. We were joined by four guest speakers who shared their experiences, telling us about group formation, how they found a site, building the homes, and ultimately going on to live in their community-led housing. If you weren’t able to make the webinars, or didn’t hear about them, now is your chance to catch up! We’ve uploaded them all here, including a brief introduction video, and hope you find them a valuable resource.

(Please note they are live recordings, so there are a few glitches and pauses as we sorted out the technology, which cannot be amended. If you have any questions about community-led housing, do get in touch with our Community Housing Adviser, Colin McDonald, who will be able to answer or signpost you to further resources: colin.mcdonald@wessexca.co.uk).
