Together we can build homes that work for people and communities

See what we do


Although our office is currently closed we are still available to support groups so please do continue to get in touch with any questions. Whilst it is inevitable that the current situation will slow some aspects of projects, this period provides great opportunities for visioning and planning. We are still very happy to support through online meetings and are developing more online training support.

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 across the Thames Valley 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, funding and support they need.


We provide advice for housing projects, from group formation, to funding, to finding a site and building, to ongoing management.


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

Why do we need collaborative housing?


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


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


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


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.
