The Mayor of London pledges £30k to create a knowledge hub for self-building, community-led housing and sustainable living.
RUSS is powered and directed by its members. We are currently made up of 700+ people who want to contribute to our vision of uniting people and planet in new affordable neighbourhoods, and we’re growing by around ten new members each week.
Becoming a RUSS member is simple, affordable and directly contributes to making our vision a reality. As a Community Land Trust, membership in RUSS takes the form of a non-profit community share purchase. Each share costs £1 and membership starts with the purchase of a minimum of one share.
Membership entitles you to a shareholding certificate, invitation to our regular members’ meetings and events, access to our online collaboration site and the ability to redeem your share for a refund at any time. If you would like to contribute to RUSS without becoming a member, please consider making a donation.
As we’re a charitable community group, we kindly ask those who can afford more to consider purchasing a larger number of shares with their membership. People who invest larger amounts in RUSS can claim tax relief on their investment.
