On The Brink Cohousing


Our cohousing community in Nether Edge, Sheffield has been going since 2018. We converted a lovely old house into 11 beautiful and unique flats and built another 5 houses to complete the community.

We are a multi-generational community that is based on companionship, ecological awareness and mutual respect. We aim to engage with our local area and other cohousing groups to promote ideas of community and sustainability, including generating and supporting local events.

Residents of On The Brink have their own individual leasehold homes and there is communal space for cooking, eating, gardening, meeting, relaxing and having fun together. Currently we are 20 adults and 6 children, plus household pets, chickens and bees.

Flat for sale or rent

We do not currently have any vacancies, but you can join out mailing list to be kept up to date when any properties come up for sale

If you are curious about cohousing or would like to know more about On The Brink, come for a visit!

You are very welcome to:

  • Join us for Friday tea at 6pm on the first or third Friday of each month. Everyone brings something vegetarian to share in our common house kitchen for this weekly meal. It’s a great way to chat with people round the table and find out about life at On The Brink.
  • Take part in our monthly grounds and garden work day on the first Sunday of the month, 10am-12.30pm, with a coffee break and sometimes a shared lunch too. Talk with members as you help with tasks like sweeping leaves, gathering kindling for the common room stove or tending the veg patch.

You’ll have the chance to meet community members, talk to us about our experiences of cohousing, take a look around and get a feel for the place.
