Veterans Self-Build Scheme

Set up in the late 1980s, Community Self Build Agency (CSBA) has helped hundreds of homeless or vulnerable people to have the opportunity to build their own homes.   Since 2019 CSBA has become part of Alabaré, and we now manage the day to day operations of CSBA.

CSBA has 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 include the Nelson Project in Plymouth - a site that includes 12 self-build homes for military veterans and 12 mixed-use affordable homes, including supported housing.

Despite all the challenges 2020 presented, six Veteran Self-Builders moved into their own homes in time for Christmas in Leominster, Herefordshire. While this year, despite the pandemic backdrop, we broke ground in August with another Plymouth development, The Stirling Project, which will include 25 self-contained affordable rental homes featuring up to 12 which will be self-built by former service personnel in need of housing.
