The housing crisis in London is getting worse with no sign of improvement for local people. RUSS is proposing a radical solution by empowering local people to design and help build their own homes on a non-profit basis.

We are run by volunteers and have overcome many challenges in getting to the point where we are now. We are progressing with the design for our first community-led scheme of 33 homes, for planning submission in early 2017. In order to continue this work and keep our project on track we need your help. We need to raise £80,000 to cover our running costs for next year and cover the project costs to planning submission. The support of Friends, Champions and Patrons therefore remains as vital as ever.

We are offering our supporters a range of ‘Gifts’ in return for your donation. We hope you can make a contribution and help us to create a ‘Community-led Housing Movement’ in the UK and make a major impact on RUSS’s future success.
