Manchester Urban Cohousing (MUCH)


Manchester Urban Cohousing (MUCH) will be a mutually supportive and sustainable cohousing community for people aged 50 and over in a suitable location, in South Manchester.

We aim to create cohousing which promotes our well-being and enables us to continue to thrive.

We want to live in our cohousing homes for as long as we are able to sustain an independent life by mutually supporting each other and with additional external support. We will ensure that the design of our homes and shared indoor and outside spaces enable us to meet our future mobility and other needs.

We aim to obtain PassivHaus certification to ensure healthy homes, high build quality, low running and maintenance costs which all contribute to a lower carbon footprint.

MUCH is currently recruiting new members who want to live in and take an active part in older peoples’ cohousing.
We’re looking for people who share our vision and values and would like as diverse a group of people as possible to be part of MUCH!
