A community housing co-operative

Phoenix is a fully-mutual Housing Co-operative that is governed by its tenant members. Founded in 1980, we seek to provide accommodation for single people in housing need who cannot otherwise afford it.

In addition to providing homes for people in housing need, Phoenix has always sought to create a community for people to learn new skills and develop friendships.

Based on our belief in self-help and co-operation Phoenix members have undertaken several refurbishment projects which have successfully developed into partnerships and more secure housing for many of our members.


The Phoenix community also organises social events, produces a regular newsletter and gets involved in a range of projects. This website, for example, is conceived and maintained by the membership.

If you would like to work with us, or if you own or know of properties that are currently empty across London, please contact the Phoenix office.
