If you or someone you know is struggling to afford to live locally, please complete our short no obligation survey. This will help us find out more about the type of housing need that local people have and help us to come up with specific projects that will help us to meet those needs. We have launched the survey with the help of Collaborative Homes Oxfordshire, and it will run until 21 November 2021.

We are delighted to announce that WAMCLT is now a registered Community Benefit Society. We have successfully registered with the Financial Conduct Authority as CBS no 8694. The rules of the society can be found on our website on the membership page.

We would like to thank Wrigleys solicitors for their help and advice in drawing up our society rules and with our application.  ncorporation as a CBS will enable us to build our membership base, expand our different activities and raise funds, while being flexible for future directions. We are very excited to have taken this hugely important step for the future.

Volunteers Lifting Construction Frame

RBWM is currently consulting on their future housing strategy (ending 3 February 2021). 

We strongly believe that RBWM's Legal framweoks can make (or break) housing initiatives and so have responded to the RBWM consultation to strengthen the wording to support community led housing.  It is of the utmost importance that local and national housing policy supports, encourages and enables Community Led Housing.

Working with specialist legal solicitors to the sector, Wrigleys, we have done all of the ground work needed to set up a Community Benefit Society, including all of the draft rules prior to incorporation.  We will press the button as soon as the time is right and we have all the Board members and funding in place to make it a success.  Registering with the Financial Conduct Authority will be part of the incorporation rprocess.
