WEBINAR 2 of 2

RUSS is a volunteer-led Community Land Trust based in south London, founded in 2009 with the mission of creating sustainable neighbourhoods and genuinely affordable homes.  In June 2018, RUSS was granted planning permission for 33 homes at Church Grove, Ladywell, south east London. It will be London's largest affordable self-build housing project. 

RUSS has set up a School of Community-led Housing offering individuals, community groups and housing professionals the chance to learn from RUSS’s many years of experience and gain information about how to set up and develop a community-led housing project.

This online workshop is the second of two webinars presenting the first module in our education programme, through which we share our experience and learning since setting up the organisation as a Community Land Trust in 2009.  The first module in a programme of 5, this workshop covers the actions required to set up a community-led housing (CLH) project from the very start.

Our workshops are informal and interactive, with practical exercises, and time to meet like-minded people, housing professionals and groups already involved in CLH projects.
