Everyone deserves a safe, secure, and affordable home. Unfortunately, average wages in Adur are lower than the UK average and an estimated 83% of households in Adur with a current need are unlikely to have sufficient income to afford market housing.
This lack of homes at affordable rents is the reason we formed the Adur Collective Community Land Trust (ACCLT) in 2020. ACCLT is incorporated as a community benefit society which allows us to use solid community support and a combination of community and commercial fundraising to provide truly affordable homes for the residents of Adur – in effect acting as a not-for-profit landlord.
Over the last two years we have recruited over three hundred members and are now focussing on raising capital to fund our first project.
We have a small, resolute team committed to making ACCLT a success and are now looking for additional volunteers to join the team. We are currently keen to expand our board with additional skills in fundraising and social media – for full details contact firstname.lastname@example.org . However, if you just want to help us when you can we would welcome anyone that shares our commitment to ensure everyone has a suitable home they can afford.
Membership is open to both individuals and business for the sum of £1 and £10, respectively. You can find further details and join online at www.acclt.org.uk
