Ginger Giraffe Collective
The aim of Ginger Giraffe Collective is to build a cohousing community comprised of those who have health and social care needs, such as disabled and elderly people, as well as those who can provide the necessary support, such as carers and students.
Established in 2015, the collective was inspired by a group of disabled people, academics, key workers practising in the field and students who came together to reimagine the delivery of health, social care, and housing.
Guided by the principle of co-production, their housing model not only ensures that individuals’ care and support needs are met but also addresses the issue of housing affordability for key workers and allows students to receive a unique service-user based learning experience whilst on placement.

We are helping Ginger Giraffe develop clarity and simplicity to their innovative residential care model and how it would work in practice in an initial business plan.
