RUSS Community Housing Meetings are back! Join us on November 20th for the first in the series of events held at Fox and Firkin pub in Ladywell.
What are the realities of living in community housing? Join us at the upcoming housing meeting to find out more!
This month we’ll be joined by Anna Watkins and Diana Deeks Plummer from Older Woman Co-Housing (OWCH) and Szczepan Orłowski from Sanford Housing Co-operative. Our invitees will share their unique stories of setting up and living in community housing, followed by a Q&A at the end.
Sanford is the oldest purpose-built housing co-op in the UK. Founded in 1973, there are around 125 tenant-members living in 14 houses and a block of flats. They encourage everyone to investigate how new housing developments could serve people by implementing sustainable ownership.
OWCH is a group of women over fifty who have created their own community in a new, purpose-built block of flats in North London. Actively managed by its residents, they see cohousing as a way of living as co-operative, friendly neighbours. Find out more here:
