Fountain Self Build Group was established in 2015, by group of Waltham Forest residents in overcrowded households. Their aim is to create a sustainable community of social and genuinely affordable rented homes, meeting the needs of the self-build group.
Inspired by the Headway Self Build project, the group are looking to partner with a housing association who could forward-fund the scheme and build homes to a watertight shell. Members would then self-finish the scheme with last-fix carpentry and decorating and have approached a local college to collaborate with on the training.
How we’re helping
We have provided Adviser sessions about their approach, and explored the possibility of a relationship with Clarion and other partners.
