Help us build better communities and support the community-led housing movement

RUSS is pioneering a unique affordable housing model, owned and controlled by the community. The housing crisis is not going away, and policy-makers are looking for alternative solutions: our work is vital to demonstrate an alternative method, one that is environmentally-sustainable, community-controlled and affordable for current and future generations.

We’re a not-for-profit organisation, run predominantly by volunteers. We raise awareness of community housing solutions with academics, policymakers and activists, and through the RUSS school we share our learning to support others to initiate their own developments. We host regular members’ meetings and last year our work was supported by over 250 amazing volunteers!

The support of Friends, Champions and Patrons remains as vital as ever. 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.

We are offering our supporters a range of ‘Gifts’ in return for your donation.
