Building Community - church responses to the housing crisis

The ‘Building Community’ report was commissioned as a discussion starter for the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Commission on Housing, Church and Community.

It highlights the extraordinary work local churches and dioceses are already doing to help tackle the housing problems they see in their community, including through the use of church land for affordable housing; offering practical support to people at risk of homelessness; and helping to build community on new housing developments.

"I commend [the report] to you and hope it will stimulate reflection upon the examples it contains, learning from both the challenges that have been faced and the successes that have been enjoyed."

The Right Reverend Graham Tomlin, Bishop of Kensington
The Commission seeks to listen to people with direct experience of housing issues and hear from local churches and other organisations with experience of tackling these issues in their community throughout the course of its work.
