Build It continues support for CSBA


Over the past 8 months, Build It magazine, the longest-running self build and home renovation title on the market, has continued to support the Community Self Build Agency (CSBA), after announcing the CSBA as their official charity back in June.

Build It has so far donated £2,500 to CSBA, after raising funds at a Build It Live Bicester industry summer party, in June.

Further support was shown at Build It's annual industry award-ceremony, where the CSBA were given the platform to raise the profile of their work, in front of a room full of key industry figures, including council members with significant influence.

Our national development director, John Gillespie, commented:

“We want to help people become involved in being the solution to their own housing situation. Whilst on the self build journey people learn that it’s about more than simply accommodation, but also about the sense of collaboration through community led development schemes and developing recognised skills which could lead to future employment. We’re very grateful to have the support of Build It to help us deliver these goals.”
