Welcome to ChaCo!


Chapeltown Cohousing is creating sustainable and affordable homes for up to 33 households. Transforming derelict land into a vibrant neighbourhood with low-energy homes, shared facilities and gardens, recreational space, opportunities for inter-generational connections and a diverse intentional community grown from the local area.

What makes this venture special is that it is run by local people to benefit local people. At least two-thirds of the residents will come from Chapeltown. We are also working hard to make sure that the group reflects the diversity of the local area in terms of age, ethnicity and wealth.


Everyone should have a safe, secure and affordable home and you can help make it happen in one of the most deprived areas of the country. Your investment can change lives and landscapes, now and for future generations and what’s more we are also able to offer an interest rate of up to 4%.

Ethical investment opportunity

Maureen Jones,
Prospective Resident


I’ve spent most of my life here in Chapeltown and I love this place. It’s been home for my grandmother, mother, me, my children and grandchildren.

Cohousing is going to be a great way to keep communication alive across the generations to the benefit of all of us, young and old.

Short-term loans

This is what we’ve raised to date: we’re well on our way.
