The Confederation of Cooperative Housing Toolkit

CCH has produced a very comprehensive toolkit covering most aspects of the governance and management of a CLH organisation. The toolkit is based on the experience of housing co-operatives but has been recently broadened to be relevant to other forms of community- led housing. It covers three main areas:

  • Values & Principles: what is the organisation about?  How does it interact with its membership?
  • Governance & Viability: is the organisation operating in accordance with an appropriate Code of Governance? Is the organisation financially viable?
  • Management: is the organisation managing effectively and delivering excellent results?
  • The CCH Governance and Management Guidance for Co-operative and Community Led Housing toolkit can be found here.

More details and professional support in the development and/or negotiation of management agreements is available direct from CCH. Contact:
