Become a member
YorSpace is a volunteer-led Community Benefit Society that is powered and directed by its members. If you care about building low cost, co-operatively owned, sustainable homes, we’d love you to join us. Membership is open to all and costs just £2!
Becoming a YorSpace member is simple, affordable and directly contributes to making our vision a reality. As a Community Benefit Society, membership in YorSpace takes the form of a non-profit community share purchase. Each share costs £2 and membership starts with the purchase of a minimum of one share.
Membership entitles you to a shareholding certificate, regular project updates, invitations to our member’s meetings and events and the right to annually vote in our Board of Directors.
To become a YorSpace member and community shareholder, simply fill out the online form below and purchase your YorSpace membership online via the link.
By choosing to become a member you agree to commit to help the Society meet its Vision to create low cost, co-operatively owned, environmentally sustainable homes that create and sustain community…
Volunteering and members’ meetings
YorSpace members’ meetings and one-off events are a chance for existing, new and prospective members to meet, share ideas, and keep up to date on the progress of our project.
In addition to members’ meetings, team meetings are held where Hub members collaborate on YorSpace tasks and organise and attend other events and meetings as and when they are needed.
If you would like to volunteer with The Hub who run the team meetings, please fill out the online form below, purchase your online YorSpace membership share and then check out the opportunities here to join our team.
