Who We Are
Cohousing Berkshire is a group of people who are aiming to set up one or more cohousing
developments in Berkshire. Cohousing means neighbourhoods where people live independently
but also foster a spirit of community through a shared house or facilities, some
communal activities and meals (optional), and by managing their own development.
While maintaining modern independence, it is an answer to the sense of isolation
that many people feel with the break up of close family or village identity. It
is to feel that you belong again. For a fuller introduction, click here.
We are working closely with The UK Cohousing Network, and drawing from their expertise
accumulated through experience of other cohousing projects in the UK. We meet monthly
in Reading - see Meeting Schedule.
Cohousing Berkshire and
KATCH (Kennet And Thames Cohousing)
KATCH arose in 2010 as the project focused body out of Cohousing Berkshire, which
still continues as an information centre. Cohousing Berkshire is an Unincorporated
Organisation, while KATCH is soon to become a Community Interest Comapny.
