The National CLT Network is a membership body. Put simply, without our members, we would not exist. We support, promote and represent Community Land Trusts across the country, and in turn our members shape and govern our work.
The National CLT Network has earned the reputation in Westminster as a formidable lobbying organisation. Here are our key wins in recent years, all achieved by working together with members:
  • Securing the £300m Community Housing Fund
  • A full exemption for CLTs from the 1% rent cut
  • A discretionary exemption for CLTs from the Voluntary Right to Buy
  • A probable exemption for CLTs from the Government’s leasehold reforms
And here are a few more reasons for joining our membership to consider:
  • You'll receive some great benefits. Our packages are tailored to give you all the benefits and support you need, whatever stage of development your CLT has reached or whatever type of organisation you are. These include access to specialist funding, free legal advice, Directors and Officers Liability Insurance, free or discounted places at Network events and much more.
     
  • Get noticed as part of this groundbreaking movement. The CLT movement is taking off across the country, changing the game for housing and getting the recognition it deserves from Government. Our members are recognised as being strong, effective organisations leading the change in their communities. If you're a professional looking to support the sector, you can benefit from being identified with this innovative social movement.
     
  • Shape our work and share in the benefits of our multiple campaigning wins. Our lobbying and campaigning work has been essential in ensuring CLTs thrive, saved some from policies that would have had catastrophic implications and securing major multimillion funding that will change the face of community led housing.By joining the Network, you are adding your voice to this vital campaigning work.
     
  • Learn from others and share your story. By sharing your story with the national movement of CLTs, together we can make sure that others learn from your experience. Although every CLT is unique, the lessons you learn could transform the journey for someone else. The National CLT Network exists to ensure that the experience of our members can be shared, so that CLTs thrive together.
