A group of people in Leeds are setting up a housing co-op, aimed around alternative housing.
The aim of snarl is to be a co-op that facilitates people to take control of their own housing.
It will have room for people to live permanently and a spare room for temporary residents i.e. asylum seekers and others in need of immediate housing.
The house will have a resource library where people can work from helping advise people on alternative housing options or helping with general housing matters.
A housing co-op is run by it members, who are also the tenants, providing them with control over their own housing. the tenants are collectively their own landlord.
It is aimed to be a safe space for all with a focus on queer and trans .
We are currently looking for new members.
