Who we are
Wales Rural Housing Enablers (RHEs) are a network of independent experts working in rural communities across Wales supporting the delivery of homes for local people. A pilot RHE project was implemented in 2004 in Monmouthshire and South Powys; since then the network has grown and now covers the majority of rural Wales.
The RHEs are supported by a variety of funders including the Welsh Government, local authorities, national parks and affordable housing providers.
The Joseph Rowntree Foundation identified the importance of the RHE role by providing a brokering service between communities and other parties involved in the development of rural housing. The RHE ensures that the community and those in housing need are the focus of any project.

Green light for Castle Caereinion
Castle Caereinion Community Land Trust and Mid-Wales Housing have secured planning permission for a small development in the village of Castle Caereinion, near Welshpool. The Rural Housing Enabler introduced both parties to each other after the scheme came to a standstill. The enabler also assisted the Community Trust with setting up a register for people who are looking for a home in the village.More
