Join us on Saturday 24 June for a day dedicated to community-led housing and how people can make it happen.
We have a housing crisis in Brighton & Hove. House prices are nearly five times what they were 20 years ago, over 30% of households are privately renting, 1 in 69 people are homeless. Damp housing, overcrowding and evictions are all too common.
Community-led housing (including housing co-operatives and cohousing) is one of many ways to create more genuinely affordable and secure housing in the city. It also enables people to be part of a community and to take power back from the hands of developers, letting agencies and a housing market that is out of control.
Housing Crisis: Community solutions 2017 will be a chance to join existing community housing groups or start your own with other like-minded people at the event. People from housing organisations and campaigns in the city will be there to answer any questions.
There will also be a session on how people or groups can access money and support to help create new community-led housing in Brighton & Hove.
The event takes place on Saturday 24 June, 9:30am at Brighton Steiner School, Roedean Road, Kemp Town, Brighton, East Sussex, BN2 5RA.
