Date: 5th October 2017
Time: 7pm – 9pm

Please RSVP: Eventbrite
Oxford Community Led Housing Project is a new partnership project by OCLT, CFO and OCF. We have been commissioned by Oxford City Council to conduct a research project on how community-led housing could be delivered sustainably in Oxford. Community Led Housing (CLH) is about local people playing a leading and lasting role in solving local housing problems, creating genuinely affordable homes and strong communities in ways that are difficult to achieve through mainstream housing.
We would like to invite you and members of your network to join us in finding out more about Community-Led Housing, and hearing from existing housing groups such as Kindling, Dragonfly, Animate, Homes for Oxford etc. in sharing their experiences in setting up their housing initiative. We’re also keen on having you join us to give input to the research project. As this will be our first event, we’ll be giving an introduction to the research project, but would also like to invite you to share the challenges you faced as individuals and as a network in the struggle we’re facing with the lack of genuine affordable housing.
This event is also open to members of the public who are interested in finding out more about community-led housing and who would like to know more about local CLH initiatives. So please spread the word within your networks, and invite anyone you think is interested in CLH in Oxford. This will be a great networking opportunity as different housing groups will be in one room sharing their experiences. Please use the event links on Facebook or Eventbrite to sign up and share information. Alternatively, I’ve written a brief cover email below that you can copy and send out.
We hope that you and/or a representative of your group will be able to join us to encourage and support community-led housing in Oxford.
We look forward to hearing your response. And please do not hesitate to get in touch should you have any queries.
