Community Housing

3rd February 2020

I’m getting in contact on behalf of Wessex Community Assets (WCA), who have been working in the community housing sector for the past 20 years, as we are running a series of free events across Somerset and Dorset during March as part of launching a new Community Housing Hub in the region.


The events are specifically designed to give local strategic partners information on the different models that can be used for community housing, as well as sharing examples of successful community housing projects which are already established. 


There will be presentations from our community housing adviser Colin McDonald, WCA Director Elizabeth Maunder, and a community-led housing group, followed by a Q&A and an informal networking session.


The community-led housing sector is developing rapidly, and this is a perfect time to become familiar with the opportunities it presents to your community, particularly as the need for diverse and innovative approaches to affordable housing in rural areas is more pressing than ever. We hope you can join us at the event on Thursday 5 March, 6-8pm, at Seavington Millenium Hall.
