Local Project Support

The Local Projects Service is available to all types of organisations from local authorities to community groups and developers.

The support on offer includes:

  • help to identify viable one off multi-unit projects in your area (can be single unit if you are a charity, community group or social enterprise)
  • sourcing funding and assisting you to secure it
  • liaising with third parties and bring interested partners together
  • producing a project plan & providing assistance right through the process until the project is delivered

Projects can include conversion of empty buildings of any sort as long as the intended end use is for housing

Gavin Leask is the Empty Homes Local Projects Manager and can be contacted on 0344 515 2237 or
