We’re looking for a number of good-natured, committed co-operators to take our Co-op to the next level in provision of quality co-operative housing.
‘In housing need’ is a reasonably flexible term and would, for example, apply to the majority of single people in private accommodation. Benefit from affordable housing and hold a democratic stake in Southampton’s only housing co-operative. Tidy, secure and reliable bedspaces in shared and 1-bed properties coming up across next year. Membership Applications are taking around 3-6 months to process, so plan ahead. Check this website for further information.

BEFORE YOU DECIDE WHETHER TO COMMIT TO A HOUSING CO-OPERATIVE
* The process to membership usually takes around 3 months, and Hamwic Housing Co-operative is under no obligation to accept any applicant to membership.
* Only members can be housed. Consequently, if a member loses their membership they lose their housing.
* Tenancies are contractual tenancies, meaning a member has contractual obligations to help run the society on a voluntary basis.
