Community engagement and community-led housing – video

On 27 September, Keith Brown (Community Organiser for Nationwide) and Sam Kinch (Heart of Hastings) gave a workshop on how to get the wider community involved in a community-led housing project. They are both community organisers that are trying to build a community, not just houses.

Keith Brown gave the first half and talked about how he is working to build community around Oakfield Campus, a significant new housing development in Swindon. His role is to ensure those living locally are supported to have their say on the number and mix of properties to be built, and to help create positive change in their neighbourhood.
