RUSS is a volunteer-led Community Land Trust based in south London, founded in 2009 with the mission of creating sustainable neighbourhoods and genuinely affordable homes. We aim to bring together people and nature to build a more mutually beneficial world.



RUSS’ volunteer members and project team will be working hard in 2016 to prepare for our first community-led self-build housing project in Church Grove, Ladywell. Keep up to date with all the latest news and views from RUSS here.
