Community-led housing is a way for local people to achieve their aspirations for an area. It is an opportunity for communities to come together to support development of homes, and to build capacity within a neighbourhood. Community-led housing is at the heart of what Witton Lodge Community Association do and what made us who we are today. Community-led housing is an increasingly important agenda in Birmingham, and across the UK as a whole.
Birmingham Community Homes is a new organisation which aims to see 5% of all homes built in Birmingham to be community-led by 2031. We are proud to be one of the pioneering members of ‘Birmingham Community Homes’. The group consists of experienced and expert practitioners from across a range of housing and community focused organisations, bringing together a mix of knowledge and passion to bring about a community led housing renaissance in the city.
This partnership is founded on a belief in genuine collaborative working, striving for equality of outcomes and community focused objectives. We have emerged from a motive of passion to see community led housing flourish rather than through selection and would invite all others who share these values to join us. Please get in touch if you would like to be part of the movement.
