CDS is a co-operative society that was first established in 1975 and the provide, support and promote co-op and community-led housing so that more people can be involved in helping to meet their own housing needs and aspirations.

As a provider, CDS are a regulated housing association providing 700 affordable rented homes and 300 leasehold properties in London and the home counties. As a supporter, they are the largest co-op service agency in the South-East offering landlord and business services to around 45 co-ops and their 2,000 homes. As a promoter, they aim to use a proportion of surpluses to invest in making community-led housing part of the mainstream housing sector.

The Martello team are really looking forward to working with CDS over the coming months, Andy Cruttenden, Martello Managing Director said, “We’re really excited to have been selected as an approved consultant on the CDS Co-operatives framework. The work that they do across London and the South East is instrumental in providing good quality, community-led housing solutions for today and for future generations.”
