Cohousing in the UK and worldwide

Cohousing began in Denmark. The first cohousing community was built in 1972 for 27 families, close to Copenhagen. Since then cohousing has spread rapidly, and today 1 percent of the Danish population, about 50,000 people live in cohousing.

Cohousing communities in the UK currently range in size from around 10 households to around 40 households. Most communities are mixed communities with single people, couples and families but some are specifically for people over 50 and there is increasing interest in communities of common interest such as women only or LGBT groups.
