The Hub is initially funded by the Mayor of London (£250k spread over three years), several London boroughs and CDS.
The Hub is initially being hosted by CDS at its offices in Borough in London. We hope to have a Project Director in post by January 2018. We are also recruiting a ‘bank’ of enablers – people skilled in different aspects of community-led housing – to help groups and local authorities as they develop their plans. If you are interested and want to know more contact us.
In the longer term, the aim is that the Hub will become a self-sustaining resource for London. It is anticipated that this will follow the effective blueprint devised in other hubs and umbrellas where successful schemes pay forward through a project fee.
