RUSS is powered and directed by its members. The organisation currently has 900+ people who want to contribute to our vision of enabling people to create new affordable neighbourhoods across London, and we are growing by around ten new members each week.

Become a RUSS member

Becoming a RUSS member is simple, affordable and directly contributes to making our vision a reality. As a Community Land Trust, membership 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, invitations to our regular RUSS Community Housing Meetings and events, and access to our online collaboration site.

Should you wish to, you can redeem your share(s) for a refund at any time.

As we are 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.

To become a RUSS member and community shareholder, simply read our shareholder Terms-and-Conditions then fill in the online form – see link below.

Each meeting focuses on a particular topic or area of interest, and encourages attendees to contribute their own experiences. Members and prospective members of RUSS are encouraged to come and lean more about what we’re up to, and how to get involved.
