Charity Bank has been covering different housing funding options and has taken a closer look at individual projects. It produced an interesting case study about On the Brink Cohousing.
“The idea behind On the Brink was to create a social and sustainable community that promotes both co-operation and social cohesion. Each house member has their own living space but also benefits from communal spaces allowing them to cook, eat, garden, meet, relax and have fun together. Our community is diverse and multi-generational, with ages currently ranging from 4 to 72. Elsewhere isolation, loneliness and disconnection can be symptoms of individual living, On the Brink offers an opportunity to be part of a larger, mutually-beneficial community instead.”
