Together we can build homes that work for the Thames Valley

See what we do

We think houses made by the people who live in them create better homes and stronger communities

Collaborative Housing provides advice and support so people in Oxfordshire can plan, fund and build their own homes or work in partnership to do so.

We bring local groups into contact with housing experts, connecting them to the professional advice and support they need.


We help local groups find and access the financial support they need, from startup grants to long-term loans.


We understand national and local policy and can liaise with authorities to advocate on your behalf.

Why do we need collaborative housing?


Houses that work with the environment not against it is our key belief, as they play a big role in people’s integration with the environment.


Collaborative housing is transparent, open and driven by the needs of people, making not just houses but cohesive, connected communities.


New housing must meet the needs of everyone, with permanent affordability a priority not an afterthought.


Our ambitious aims, can-do attitude and ability to solve problems, allows us to achieve innovative and creative solutions to the housing crisis.
