Hudswell Community Charity took away the award for Social Investment at this year’s Social Enterprise Yorkshire and the Humber (SEYH) Awards on 7 November in Sheffield, for their innovative community led housing project.
Their work has helped to provide affordable housing for local people in their village bordering the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
Community First Yorkshire has been supporting this community led housing project and will be sharing the story to encourage other community groups and parish councils to take up similar projects across North, South and West Yorkshire.
Hudswell Community Charity’s latest project has seen three houses built with a mix of loan, grant and reserve funding sources. The project has been made successful by a small volunteer led team, and with new tenants from the village confirmed, their aim of ensuring a legacy for Hudswell is being realised.
