About Us

We are a registered charity run by unpaid volunteers, and our aim is to provide genuinely affordable houses and flats in Keswick for local people, including families and single people.

We were formed in response to a Churches Together in Keswick Consultation by a group of local individuals in 2009 who wanted to do something positive to tackle the shortage of good, quality, affordable housing in the town for people already living here or seeking to settle in the town where many had grown up.

After much hard work and a successful issue of public shares, our first housing development – The Hopes – opened in 2013 at a cost of £1.1 million. Since then, we have completed two more projects – Banks Court and Calvert Way – and we are now working on our fourth development, in Southey Street, which will take our total of properties to 41.
