The Tiny House Community Bristol working group has emerged from a shared interest group on facebook. We still use facebook to share links with each other and to communicate with our wider membership. Anyone can join the facebook group and watch what we are doing. Go there now.
All working group members have committed to our Vision and Values statement, participate in our consensus decision making processes and contribute time and effort to the progression of our mission. At this stage we do not have a doors open policy; this is because we understand that in order to work effectively, groups cannot grow beyond a certain size when tackling the kinds of problems that we need to address at this stage in our project. At the same time, we are not exclusive about our activities and ultimately want to contribute a solution to the housing problem that could benefit anyone. It’s a tricky balance! Please do get in touch or watch us on facebook, twitter or check for updates here on the site; and do let us know what you think about our plans and ideas and feel free to contribute your own. The facebook group does require a administrator to approve new members but there is no vetting process - we'll click "approve" as soon as we can.
We are looking into sources of grant funding to further our project and bring us closer to making our dream a reality. In the mean time we cover costs by asking our members to make donations towards expenses. We try to keep our costs minimal and essential. We use consensus decision making to decide what to spend our cash on and our treasurer publishes completely transparent quarterly accounts.
If you would like to discuss supporting our project with a financial contribution please contact us.
We cannot achieve anything on our own and wouldn't chose to even if we could! There are so many brilliant organisations, bodies and companies that we are keen to work with. Check out our list of links to see who inspires us, look at our calendar to see whose events we are going to, check our blog for updates on who we are meeting and dealing with and contact us if you want to be involved with what we are doing!
