Most of the information from the old website has been transferred to the new website. If it is general information about Cohousing it will be in the about or information section; if it is detailed information relevant to Cohousing groups it will be in the new membership area My UKCN. If you are looking for something that was previously available and you can’t find it in either of these areas, we have an archive that you can request from via hello@cohousing.org.uk

Both our Executive Director and Directors/Trustees/Cohousing Ambassadors will consider requests to speak at appropriate events. Usually we require travel expenses to be paid to cover our costs, and occasionally a fee to cover our time. Email: anna@cohousing.org.uk with details of your event and we will respond with our availability.
