Could you live in a Housing co-operative?

What is the west end housing co-operative?

The co-operative is a group of people who jointly manage the houses they live in – 12 separate flats and houses – and control the way their housing is run. It is a legal body with rules approved by the registrar of friendly societies.

What do you get?

Somewhere to live… Not only that – you will live in a community where you have a real say in how your housing is managed.

What will the co-operative want from you?

Participation, it is essential that you accept the responsibility of membership and contribute positively to the control and management of the co-op’s affairs. All members of the co-op meet once a month in one of the members houses or flats – we rotate the venue – to go through the co-op’s business. At the: annul meeting, members of the co-op take on voluntary jobs for the coming year (chair, secretary, repairs, treasurer etc). However, members share their experience to help each other with the jobs. The co-op engages outside agencies to help with managing rents, major repairs and legal advice.
