Community Self Build Agency
Since being set up in the late 1980’s, Community Self Build Agency (CSBA) have helped hundreds of homeless or vulnerable people to have the opportunity to build their own home. From May 2019 CSBA has become part of Alabaré, and we now manage the day to day operations of CSBA.
CSBA have completed over 178 self-build projects across the UK to date, developing in-excess of 1200 housing units to some of the most disadvantaged members of the local community. Their award-winning schemes have included the Nelson Project in Plymouth - a 24-home site that includes 12 self-build homes for the military veterans and 12 mixed use affordable homes, including supported housing.
