The multi-award winning charity's focus is on helping those who wouldn’t ordinarily be able to afford to own a home of their own and we have a comprehensive procedure for selecting families. Before being accepted as home partners they had to already live or work in the city or have strong family connections. They had to be willing to give 500 hours of their time towards creating this unique community; and they had to have sufficient income to secure a mortgage to buy at least a 50% share of their new home.
The first project, which has just been completed, was to build 32 affordable homes on land donated by the Catholic Archdiocese. The charity is now embarking on new projects in conjunction with one of the leading Housing Associations in the North West.
