Some things to think about before enquiring

  • What are your expectations of community life? Are they realistic?
  • What would you enjoy about living in community? What would you find challenging?
  • What challenges do you feel you would face around working collaboratively and sharing time, space and resources?
  • Are you willing to take part in a (sometimes lengthy) decision making process and be committed to finding solutions that everyone can live with, even if they are not necessarily the best for you personally?
  • What skills or interests could you contribute to the community?
