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.
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 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 below.
If you would like to contribute to RUSS without becoming a member, please consider making a donation.
