Call for the Community Housing Fund to be extended

25 February 2020

The Spring Budget is due to be announced on 11 March 2020, will the Community Housing Fund be affected?

The big question for the community-led housing sector is whether an announcement will be made about the extension of the Community Housing Fund.

The Community Housing Fund has been instrumental in launching new community-led housing schemes.  With over 16,600 new community-led homes in the pipeline, the sector can make a small but significant contribution towards solving the housing crisis.

The National CLT Network is urging its members and supporters to campaign for the Community Housing Fund to be extended.  The current Government committed to supporting community housing in its manifesto, along with a pledge to build 300,000 new homes a year by the mid-2020s.  Extending the Community Housing Fund would be a meaningful way of making good on those promises.

To take part in the campaign, you can download template letters to send to your MP from the NCLTN's website here.  They are also asking supporters to promote their campaign via communication channels, including social media.  Fingers crossed for March!

If you would like to discuss any aspect of community led housing further, please contact Laura Moss or any other member of the dedicated Community Led Housing team on 0113 244 6100.
