Wayshaper helps to simplify, accelerate and support the process when developing a community led housing group model. It provides a way for groups to explore the needs and preferences of their members, map out priorities, explore options and make decisions.

The toolkit comprises guided workshops using a card system and online resources and is designed around four key concepts:


Workshops can be held physically and virtually, allowing all group members to participate, and allowing advisors to engage remotely.


The toolkit helps groups to explore the full range of options available to them, not just those which they are most familiar with.


Each card links to online resources, providing deeper information, helping groups to reach informed decisions.

Holistic planning

Wayshaper has been designed to reveal interdependencies which exist between options at the very earliest stage of a group’s development.
