Funding Boost for Community Self Build London

Self Build London (CSBL), a joint initiative between the Community Self Build Agency and the Walter Segal Self Build Trust, has been awarded three year funding by the Community Fund to enable it to facilitate more self build schemes across the Capital.

This is the second round of funding from the Community Fund and it reaffirms Community Fund interest in the work of CSBL. ‘Interest in London in Community Self Build has doubled in the past year, and it is wonderfully heartening to have the Community Fund backing us through the long haul of making it happen on site.’ said Nicholas Taylor, Director of CSBL. ‘We are working with grassroots groups and their housing association partners to create a rich mix of affordable homes, eco design, skills training and community development. The pilot projects can now become production models of self-help and sustainability.’
