Cornerstone Housing Co-operative is a 15-member housing co-operative in Chapeltown, Leeds, England.[1] The co-operative owns two neighbouring Victorian houses purchased in 1993 and 1995.

As a fully-mutual housing co-operative Cornerstone is owned and democratically controlled by its members who are also its tenants.[2][3] Rather than setting a fixed rent price the co-operative sets a price proportionate to each member's incomes.[4][2]

Cornerstone is home to Footprint Workers Co-operative (see below) and is a member of Radical Routes, a network of radically minded co-operatives in the United Kingdom.[5]

Footprint Workers Co-operative[edit]

Footprint Workers Co-operative is a worker-owned printing co-operative based in one of Cornerstone's houses and is closely tied with Cornerstone.[1][6] The co-operative was established in 1997 and began trading as a printers in 2000 producing zines, books, posters, and leaflets.[1] Footprint is a member of Radical Routes and prints Radical Routes' literature.[7]
