We are on the start of the journey to see 5% of homes built in Birmingham by 2031 being community-led. to see an increase in community control of existing homes and use these homes as a platform to create successful neighbourhoods
A group of experienced and expert practitioners from across a range of housing and community focused organisations, we bring together a mix of knowledge and passion to bring about a community led housing renaissance in the city. Birmingham has long been the place for housing innovations and existing organisations such as Castle Vale Community Housing Association, Witton Lodge Community Association and Birmingham Co-operative Housing Services highlight the pedigree and high levels of success already prevalent in our city. Along with representatives from emerging citizen led organisations, anchor institutions such as University of Birmingham and Birmingham City Council, and national organisations Confederation of Cooperative Housing, National Federation of Tenant Management Organisations and Locality we believe the partnership is in a strong position to help inspire a new wave of community led housing.
This partnership is founded on a belief in genuine collaborative working, striving for equality of outcomes and community focused objectives. We have emerged from a motive of passion to see community led housing flourish rather than through selection and would invite all others who share these values to join us. Please get in touch if you would like to be part of the movement.
Current members include representatives from:
