Supporting Community Led Housing
in Wiltshire & Swindon
What we do
We provide support to community groups within Wiltshire and Swindon to enable them to deliver alternative solutions to their community’s housing needs through affordable housing development, providing defined community benefits that are protected in perpetuity.
We also support community groups working in a developer-community partnership as well as facilitating the creation of relationships between Registered Providers of Affordable Housing and community groups where knowledge, experience and information can be shared for the benefit of the community.
Stronger and more resilient communities can be built through the provision of Affordable Housing and we support community groups to do this.
How we can help
