Our mission is


We're a community land trust with a mission "to provide sustainable affordable housing, and workspace for community enterprises, in Somerset; promoting co-operative principles and equality of opportunity for the benefit of the community.”
We place tenants at the heart of our governance structure, so that the land trust is always accountable to its intended beneficiaries. At the same time, any Somerset resident can join and have a say in how the society is run. Read 'About us' to find out more.

Workspace for Community Enterprise

 

SCCLT goes beyond the simple provision of affordable housing by also taking on and developing commercial premises – our mission statement covers both residential and business use of property. For us, this is important as people do not form communities simply by living next door to one another, but by sharing livelihood, culture and skills.

This approach enables us to help tenants to not only have secure accommodation but to work together to improve their living standards and resilience. It is also enables us to motivate and mobilise our supporters by showing that we do not just manage social problems, but bring about economic change in the community.

Our workspace to rent:

- no units presently vacant
