Opportunity to join a Housing Co-op in Sheffield

March 2020

Share Instead Housing Co-op currently has one vacancy. This five-member mutual housing co-op is based in a spacious old house in Sharrow/Nether Edge with a large garden. They make decisions by consensus and aim to keep rent below the maximum paid by Housing Benefit. They eat together on weekday evenings, taking turns to prepare a vegan meal. They share the costs of food, as well as maintenance costs and bills, and also share the work involved in running the co-op and caring for the house.

Share Instead has a core aim of working towards a more peaceful, sustainable and fairer world. They want the co-op to be a place that supports activities which help to build such a world. The co-op is a member of Radical Routes secondary co-op, a network of trading and housing co-ops with similar values.

If you are interested in joining the co-op, please email on for more details and how to apply. The process takes a couple of months while they get to know you, and involves you coming to stay for a week.
