Housing Co-ops: How to set one up - Derry

category derry | housing | event notice author Saturday October 18, 2014 21:16author by Radical Routes

Co-ops & the housing crisis

Radical Routes begin an all-island speaking tour at the end of this month to people to set up their own co-ops. They are presenting this as a way out of both the precarious rental market and the trap of long-term mortgage debt.

The tour will draw on their experience where the Radical Routes network has over 35 member co-ops. They say that "While the legal and financial structures relevant to setting up a co-op are different in the UK and Ireland, the experience learned from establishing these projects in the UK is valuable to anyone in Ireland considering setting up a co-operative and taking control of their own housing situation."

Derry, Sunday 2nd November, Sandinos, 3 - 6pm.

Radical Routes is based on mutual aid and solidarity: co-ops support each other and provide legal, financial and planning advice to new co-ops free of charge. Radical Routes Ireland is inspired by this approach to solving the housing crisis and people taking direct control of their own lives. We aim to promote and support the development of a grassroots co-op movement in Ireland.

Radical Routes is a network of housing co-ops and workers co-ops all across the UK - http://www.radicalroutes.org.uk/
