Communities Creating Homes

DTA Wales and Wales Co-operative Centre have been awarded funding from the Nationwide Foundation and Welsh Government. Working in partnership, DTA Wales will recruit 18 communities over 3 years across both urban and rural areas in Wales to explore building their own affordable homes and enabling them to start up their own small scale community led housing projects with early stage support, known as the “Explore” stage.  Wales Co-operative Centre will deliver other aspects of support.  Find out more about the remainder of the programme.

Recognising the lessons learnt from a similar early stage support programme piloted in England by DTA Wales’ sister organisation, Locality, the programme will involve a blend of best practice and learning exchange, peer support and networking, and skills transfer from existing, established community led housing practitioners. 

We will be providing the peer mentoring support to each participant group, including a needs assessment, bespoke Action Plan and tailored mentoring. The programme also offers small scale funding of £2,500 for early stage costs.
