Our Project

Manchester Cohousing (ManCoHo) aims to create an intergenerational neighborhood of 20 units for 30-60 people living in a community created and run jointly by its residents, open to anyone who shares our values.

Our Values

Our community will be based on the cohousing principles of inclusion, support and consensus, including contributing to and sharing responsibility for the development of the project. There will be shared facilities to promote social interaction and mutual support while still respecting privacy.

We will create an intergenerational community where there is diversity and inclusion, which enables people to live in a supportive environment which can adapt to meet the needs of people throughout their lives.

We aim to create a safe, sociable and neighbourly community where all participate in sustaining constructive and harmonious relationships with everyone involved both in the project and the wider community.

We aim to create a supportive environment where where we can help each other to live more sustainable and fulfilling lives. In doing so we are committed to treating each other with kindness and respect.

Our values are based on the Cooperative ethical values of honest, openness, social responsibility and caring for others, and the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity.
