About us

West Midlands Urban Community Homes (wMUCH) is a not-for-profit hub for knowledge and expertise that exists to inspire and support a new wave of community led housing in the West Midlands. We do this by providing advice and support to community groups, established community organisations, housing associations, developers and local authorities who want to create community led homes. We also work collaboratively with a wide range of stakeholders to help unlock the land, finance and people needed to enable community led housing.


The West Midlands has a rich history of community led housing and we are building a movement for a new wave of homes owned, managed and stewarded by our communities. That’s because we want to see more affordable, high quality and sustainable homes in thriving neighbourhoods – great places to live, now and in the future.

The area we cover

We work across the seven constituent authorities of the West Midlands Combined Authority and the surrounding areas. This means that we work primarily across Birmingham, Coventry, Dudley, Sandwell, Solihull, Walsall and Wolverhampton. However we are also able to support projects in the surrounding areas and like to collaborate further afield wherever we can.
