RUSS is a charitable Community Land Trust that relies on the energy and ideas of volunteers and interested people to get things done. From becoming a RUSS member and volunteering with us, to making a financial or in-kind donation or even applying to self-build you own future home, there are many ways you can get involved with RUSS. We’d be grateful for the help, expertise or enthusiasm you can bring!
