39 years of thriving social housing…
We are a diverse community of 18 people, located in the heart of London. We operate on social housing principles, providing secure housing to low-income, single adults in housing need, who have a commitment to supportive communal living.
Our residents range in age from 19 to 79. We cook, eat and socialise together, make decisions together about how our house is run, and collectively provide care and support to those of our residents who are elderly or sick.
This website aims to provide an insight into our rich history, our way of life and the value of our community.
