Loanstock is a great way for people to invest in grassroots co-operative projects and for community-led housing projects to raise money using repayable loans from individuals or other organisations. Join Martyn Holmes, co-founder of Bunker Housing Co-operative on Saturday 10 November to find out more about how.
Bunker Housing Co-operative has raised over £75,000 through loanstock and are about to start work on their first two houses. Hear from Martyn about how they did it and his tips for people wanting to do the same.
The second part of the workshop will involve local housing groups discussing and sharing ideas on raising loanstock, including how to work together.
This free workshop will take place on Saturday 10 November, 1.15-5.00pm in the community room of The Bevy Pub, 50 Hillside, Brighton, BN2 4TF.
Please make sure you book your place in advance here at Eventbrite as there are limited places. The workshop is free, but we require participants to become BHCLT members (fee £1). Join here: bhclt.org.uk/membership
