Who are we?

ACRED, the Alliance for Community Realestate Development, is a non-profit, democratically governed professional organization. It develops and maintains long-term, affordable, community-owned spaces for communities and individuals working for social goals based on democratic principles.

ALLIANCE, as in our work is based on the close cooperation of several organizations. The diverse knowledge and experience of member organizations contribute to our work on community property development.

COMMUNITY, because we believe in the democratic functioning of groups, as well as in the joint development, ownership and maintenance of property. We provide affordable spaces for organizations and emerging groups that ensure long-term community-based, social use of these spaces.

REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT, because we know that for communities to grow based on economic solidarity, they need access to spaces they can function in. We have a responsibility to provide affordable housing, democratic working- and community spaces.
