to our Pioneering Senior CoHousing Project

architect’s drawing from our first proposal

Autumn 2017

Penington CoHousing is Glasgow’s first Senior CoHo development, a community-led housing initiative.  We are a membership organisation developing a not-for-profit new-build cohousing project for over 55s in Glasgow. This exciting, innovative and alternative residential project is being developed by our members themselves.

We intend to establish a thriving, mutually supportive community of seniors, a community which shares decision-making and tasks, based on our skills and abilities. Living together in this community will enable us to combat the isolation and loneliness experienced by so many older people. We have been inspired and encouraged by the paradigm shift emerging in  the UK and round the world and are at the forefront of a global movement of Senior CoHousing projects  breaking new ground for community-led, self-build and senior housing developments.

We are currently recruiting new pioneer group members and have a lot of information to share with you, so please explore our website, and contact us if you would like to know more to join the project as we move from the planning stages towards actual bricks and mortar. Or come along to one of our regular public information meetings, every third Saturday of the month 10.15 am – 11.15 am at the quiet far end of the cafe at The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall 2 Sauchiehall Street, G2 3NY Glasgow,
