Share Instead Housing Co-operative Limited

  • We are a small, fully mutual housing co-op, housing 5 members in our home in Nether Edge (or is it Sharrow?)
  • Since buying our house in 2015 we have improved the energy rating from SAP band E to C - very good news for our bills! As well as a new gas boiler with sophisticated controls we have solar hot water, solar electricity, and renovated double glazed sash windows. We are gradually improving the insulation and draught-proofing of our home. We participate in Green Homes Sheffield 'open homes' events whenever possible.
  • We are members of the Radical Routes umbrella co-op and play an active role there. Our members are active in different ways to achieve radical social change - including around ecology, energy, gender politics, peace and solidarity. We do quite a bit of singing and dancing as well :-)
  • We aim to live up to our name and share resources instead of pursuing ruthless individualism! This includes buying and cooking food together and growing some too.
  • We are currently 'full' but from time to time we have vacancies and are always happy to hear from people who are interested in co-operative living.
