Home K Our Campaigns K Renew the community housing fund

We are campaigning for the Community Housing Fund to be renewed for a further 4 years

The Community Housing Fund was incredibly successful.

From Cornwall to Cleveland, Liverpool to Peterborough, new community led homes have been built, enabled or started in development thanks to the fund. We know that without this fund, these homes would not be happening and many homes in development would have to stop.

Campaigning on the CHF will be our prioirty late summer and early Autumn when we will be asking our members and others to join us in showing Government how much difference the fund has made so far and why it’s so important to reinstate it.
