The paper discusses the philosophy of inclusive co-operative housing, where every inclusive co-operative is an experiment in community - building. It explains basic guidelines such as the necessity of a high ratio of non disabled people to people with disabilities and the importance of building on capacities, not disabilities. Co-operative housing is seen as a safeguard against isolation as well as a way of calling people together into community and safeguarding security of tenure and involvement. Keyword: Accommodation
