Empty Homes, the national campaigning charity, has a project to spread community-based regeneration in areas with high levels of empty homes. We are following demonstration projects where community-based organisations are bringing empty homes into use in areas with high levels of empty homes. We want to share their experiences and encourage other organisations to look at how community-based regeneration could work in such neighbourhoods to tackle the underlying causes of empty homes.
Our report, Community-based approaches in areas with high-levels of empty homes, aims to share the learning from the demonstration projects over the past year. It also makes recommendations about how best to support community-based empty homes work. The report is accessible via the EHN Information Library here.
We hope the report will be of interest. Please share it with colleagues and partners who may find it useful. If you would like to explore or discuss community -based approaches to bringing empty homes into use in your area, please feel free to contact Brighid Carey, project manager: firstname.lastname@example.org
