Community-Led Housing for Eastbourne

You Can Get Involved

If not us, then who else will determine
our children and grandchildren's future housing?

Together, with others in our communities, we can create 
truly low-cost housing for local key worker families on 
low incomes, to part-own and feel secure in. 

We aim to develop
shared ownership schemes, that are sustainable. 

An asset lock ensures our homes stay that way, 
in perpetuity, for future generations.

"The lack of decent and affordable housing for the people of this nation is a scandal that must be addressed with imagination and determination; across parties, across institutions and across communities." 

Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, Foreword to "Coming Home" published in 2020

Our Passion

As a social enterprise we collaborate with partners across all sectors, 

including public, business, community and third sector orgs

New Build
