Wayshaper is owned by The Confederation of Co-operative Housing and is licenced to Community Led Homes. It has been created to help accelerate the planning of community led housing projects by providing a framework for informed decision-making.

Community Led Homes

Community Led Homes is a partnership project between the Confederation of Co-operative Housing, Locality, the National Community Land Trust Network and UK Cohousing. It is a joint effort to make community led housing as easy as possible for those that want to do it and has supported hundreds of community led housing groups. Our aim is for community led housing to become a mainstream housing option. We’ve also developed and run a training and accreditation programme to equip advisors with the skills and knowledge to guide groups, jointly accredited by the Chartered Institute of Housing.

The partners

Confederation of Co-operative Housing

The CCH promotes the excellent work done by co‑operative housing organisations. We foster communication between our members and serve the sector, campaigning for quality co-operative solutions to meet the housing needs of communities across the United Kingdom.


Locality supports local community organisations to be strong and successful. Our national network of over 600 members helps more than 400,000 people every week. We offer specialist advice, peer learning and campaign with members for a fairer society. Together we unlock the power of community.

National Community Land Trust Network

Our aim is to transform the land and housing markets in England and Wales so that CLTs are mainstream, not dependent on short-lived specialist support programmes. The Network is also part of a broad alliance of organisations promoting and supporting community led housing in England.

UK Cohousing

The UK Cohousing Network is a membership organisation with a mission to enable communities to use the cohousing principles to create better places to live by reducing isolation and loneliness, and by sharing facilities and services to reduce living costs.
