Fruit Corner (BS6 6BU)
If you are interested in joining one of our communities, please send a short email, ideally with a bit about you and your current situation.
Redfield (MK18 3LZ)
There are currently three family sized units plus individual rooms empty and we are actively looking for potential members. Get in touch and come and check the place out… We try to maintain a balance of age and gender. As such at the moment, priority would be given to younger women and couples with kids.Redley Housing Cooperative is a fully mutual housing coop, meaning tenants are members and members are tenants. We share the responsibility for the day to day running, upkeep and management of this large house and gardens and agree to take this on as part of living here.Rents are cheaper than market rates, but adult residents are expected to commit about 2 days their time each week into engaging with the communal decision-making and working on the various day-to-day tasks and activities that are required to keep the house, gardens and community ticking along.It normally takes 3-4 weekend visits by potential members, and then a two week stay, before membership is agreed. This is to give both potential members and existing members plenty of opportunity to explore what it would be like to live together.If you think you might be interested drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to introduce yourself and arrange to come on an initial visitor day or wwoofing weekend where we can start to get to know each other.

Birchwood Hall Community (WR13 5EZ)
We are currently looking for new members!
Birchwood Hall Community is a group of individuals, couples and families living cooperatively which means we eat together, cook for each other, help to maintain our home, grow food, and socialise together. But we have plenty of space to be individuals too.
As we continue to grow, our intention at Birchwood is to be a more diverse group. We would particularly welcome people of colour, people from different cultural backgrounds, and new members who have, or who are planning to have, a family.
So if you’re interested in living well, living lighter, and living together, please get in touch!
