The LaunchPad development is an innovative modular accommodation solution for young independent adults who are ready for a new start in life. They will be located on the car park at the bottom of Alexandra Park, Fishponds BS16.

The Project will be for young people moving on from supported housing, as well as students from Bristol University. Together, they will be making use of their shared skills to self-manage the scheme. A key theme is bringing separated groups of young people together: 1625ip young people, students and key workers. It also has a strong focus on being part of the community and providing housing that is affordable, excellently designed and increases a sense of wellbeing.

The 31 new homes will create a mixed community which supports the young residents’ journey to independent living. It will also bring students together with other young people to create a better sense of community amongst those who are passionate about connecting with others and proactively building a new community.

LaunchPad has been made possible through collaboration between 1625 Independent People, University of Bristol Students Union, The University of Bristol and United Communities.
