Locality has some great members working in community-led housing. Here are just a few:
Canopy Housing in Leeds. http://www.canopyhousingproject.org/This is how they describe themselves…

Canopy is a self-help, community housing project based in inner city Leeds.
We renovate derelict houses to create decent homes for people that are homeless.

Our volunteer team and staff work with the new tenant to paint, decorate and
furnish their new home. Through our practical work we bring together lots of
volunteers from the local community to learn skills, increase confidence, break
down barriers and make big improvements to local neighbourhoods.

Saffron Lane Neighbourhood Council in the heart of urban Leicester is currently busy building 60 affordable houses on a piece of land that was transferred to them by Leicester City Council for just £1. Up until this year, they h ad never been involved in community led housing, but they are no looking at a further 18 houses in phase 2 of their plans.
