Join a Co-Housing Community
Join a co-housing scheme or community – in your part of the world you might be lucky enough to have one or more existing co-housing schemes. These could be in the form of an Almshouse run by the local council, or a privately established development like the owch.org development in Barnet.
Co-housing communities are very often multi-generational, but there are ones for older residents only. Often these are well-known locally but hard to get into unless you have lived in the area for a while. Private co-housing schemes typically have waiting lists and normally applicants would already be quite well known to some of the existing residents before being invited to join.
Offering individual living units, co-housing communities feature communal living areas, laundry, and gardens, plus of course, like-minded cohabitors. We have a list of co-housing projects on the site and are adding new listings daily.
