How can you help?

It may sound like a statement of the obvious, but we need land and money to help us do our work.

Land

If there is evidence of housing need in a village then it may be possible for us to obtain planning permission on land which is outside of the development boundary.

Our housing schemes typically take up less than one acre so please contact us if you have any land which may be suitable for a small development of affordable housing to meet local needs.

However, in order to develop truly affordable housing we would probably only be able to pay a price of between five to ten times the existing agricultural value.

Money

The only source of revenue funding we have is from the rents we charge on our homes.

These rents are regulated by the government so that they are affordable to those in low-paid employment.

We can obtain capital grants to assist with the costs of providing new homes but these typically only cover a proportion of the total costs.

The balance of the costs are raised by loans from financial institutions.

Any donations or bequests to help us to meet our running costs or assist with the cost of building a new scheme would be most welcome.
