Rural communities are in crisis. Many feel that they are losing the assets that are important to them, such as the village shop, pub or school. In many communities people are having to move away when they want to stay in the community - but can't because of high house prices, low wages, and a lack of suitable accommodation. Wessex Community Assets supports community groups to take on, develop and protect assets that are important to that community.
One of the services Wessex Community Assets offers is the Wessex Community Land Trust Project. This service provides intensive support to communities who would like to build affordable homes for local people.
