MUCH is currently recruiting new members who want to take an active part in creating and living in an older peoples’ cohousing project in Manchester
We’re looking for people who share our vision and values and we want as diverse a group of people as possible to be part of MUCH.
While we can’t guarantee a cohousing home for any of our members yet, joining us sooner rather than later means an opportunity to shape the community and cohousing neighbourhood. Plan ahead – we welcome your enquiries!
This video is about the award winning Older Women’s CoHousing (OWCH) project for older women in London. The cohousing scheme was renamed New Ground when they moved in:
Our membership process
Next contact us so we can start getting to know each other socially, and you can learn how we work together. Joining MUCH will be a shared decision.
Consensus decision making
Reaching consensus is different from making a decision which the majority favour, leaving a minority of the group feeling that their views have not been heard or respected.
Consensus means everyone working together to find a solution that is good for the whole group.
To do this we have conversations to find solutions which meet our needs as a group and take account of the views of the individuals within the group.
“… Having shared a house and a home with both family and friends at various times during my life, co-housing would seem to have the advantages of both sharing and living alone, while minimising the disadvantages.”MUCH member
