Presentation to House of the Commons: Scaling Up

Community-led housing is part of a growing sector of social enterprise. As a small player without financial weight or leverage, the sector is massively under-resourced. However, it is exciting because it is free from ties to centralised systems, with greater power to innovate. Despite financial and bureaucratic obstacles, driven by passionate and enterprising individuals, the community-led sector produces some inspiring results.

This is a written version of a presentation given by BSHF at the House of the Commons event in Oxford (October 2014), with additional information and links.
