3. What does ‘community self build’ mean to you? Perhaps you imagine a building site where everyone is trained up and organised to work together on each other’s homes collectively. Or maybe you think of a neighbourhood group setting up a project as a low-cost route to helping local young people to get on the housing ladder? Or might it be a group of friends wanting to create an intentional community with shared living spaces?

In reality, these are all forms of community self build, which encompasses a wide range of projects. The common thread running through them all is people organising themselves together to create the kinds of homes – and communities – that they want.
