Fledgeling Cohousing was formed initially by friends who swim at Tooting Bec Lido, all over 50, looking to build a multi-generational cohousing community.
The friends live in Wandsworth and Lambeth and looking to create a community where they can live closely sharing meals, gardening and common spaces as a well as cars and tools. They are looking to minimise their impact on the environment by building sustainably and supporting one another in older age.
The community will be managed by consensus in the interests of residents and the local community, by holding regular inclusive resident meetings.
The group currently own their own homes and aim to build or convert an existing property or properties into 8-10 units with one or two affordable units for a young family or students, as well as a studio or workspace open to the wider community.
How we’re helping
