This event is organised by The Wales Co-operative Centre.
Join a talk from Machynlleth Housing Co-operative to hear what they've learnt from setting up and living in a housing co-op.
Allan Shepherd is a community led housing enabler, working for the Wales Co-operative Centre. He also lives in the Machynlleth Housing Coop, a two-house co-op with 11 members. Allan will talk about how the co-op got started and grew; how the members run it; and what he has learnt from six years of co-operative living.
Community-led housing (CLH) is about local people taking a leading and lasting role in creating secure, affordable homes and strengthening their communities. The Communities Creating Homes programme, funded by the Nationwide Foundation and Welsh Parliament, works with groups and organisations across Wales to create a thriving community led housing movement.
