In Liverpool, we are building 32 homes in Granby-Toxteth, one of the most diverse communities in the country with over 54 nationalities and at least seven major religions represented. The area has been identified as a 'deprived community' by government and is a key regeneration and renewal area. We build houses through volunteer labour and donations of land, material and money. Each home partner family is required to contribute a minimum of 500 hours of their own labour - called 'sweat equity' - into the building process. This fosters community development, increases the pride of ownership and reduces the cost of labour; therefore, making the homes more affordable to families on low income.
