Co-operative Housing & the seven co-operative priciples

A co-operative is an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly-owned and democratically controlled enterprise. 

How We work

At Two Piers we run our coop ourselves. There are no private landlords and fixed tenancies. Each of us owns a share and are collectively responsible for the management and maintenance of our homes. 

our history

Two Piers Housing Co-operative began in 1978, when our founder Brenda Boardman realised the need for single parent housing in Brighton.Two Piers was registered as a housing association in 1979.
