Bug Housing Co-operative was formed in 2005. They are situated in Higher Bevendean and currently house six members as well as their resident cat Jasper.

Bug are a fully mutual co-op which means that all decisions are made by members, generally at our monthly meetings. Each member has their own co-op role(s), these may be taken on as an individual, shared or swapped by general agreement. Bug’s roles are treasurer, secretary, maintenance, garden, allocations, household and development.

Living within a co-op provides individuals with both affordable and secure housing. Bug believe in creating a supportive environment for all members in order for both members and “the co-op” (as a home, house and business) to thrive.

When a vacancy arises they send an advert out through both the CHIBAH and Permaculture networks. Applicants that meet their criteria are invited to interview and successful applicants are taken on with a three month probationary period before becoming full members.
