The Nationwide Foundation gives over £1 million to back community-led housing

The Nationwide Foundation is awarding over £1 million to support the growth of community-led housing, so that the sector can deliver more decent, affordable homes for people in need.

Six organisations will use the funding to provide support and advice to community-led housing groups. The Nationwide Foundation recognises that, while there is a growing appetite for community-led housing and more communities are mobilising to turn this into a reality, there is a desperate lack of support which can stall or even halt promising and much-needed projects.

The organisations funded by the Nationwide Foundation will be offering the information, support, advice and technical expertise that is needed to progress schemes. The focus will be on ensuring that community groups can effectively and more easily deliver homes that are both decent and affordable and meet the needs of their communities.
