Event description

Description

In 2011 the Welsh Government established a Co-operative Housing Project, managed by the Wales Co-operative Centre and supported by the Confederation of Co-operative Housing. Since then the project has worked with dozens of local groups and housing organisations to explore mutual and co-operative options, including several pioneer schemes across Wales.

Co-operatives can be developed in either new or existing housing, cover a full range of tenures and be adapted to meet local needs and priorities. Their unique features are that they are owned by members who give them varying degrees of control over their homes and community, depending on the precise nature of the co-operative.

All of the pioneers have developed in contrasting ways, adopted different models or variants and have other unique and defining characteristics. This included the different ways in which individuals came to be involved, the size and nature of the housing co-operative, and how they engaged and identified who would eventually live in and run the housing co-operative.

These pioneering housing co-ops, in line with 6th International Principle of Co-operation, are now seeking to share and continue their development with other co-ops.
