What an amazing day! Thanks to all our home partners, friends, family, and supporters who made the street party/Eid celebration such a wonderful and joyous occasion. From the delicious international cuisine, to the henna tattooing, face painting, bouncy castle, and balloon artistry, it was a true celebration of diversity and what makes this a very special community.

There have been many 'firsts' during the development of Kingsley Rd, Alt Street and St Bernard's but never before have we had a live string band...and donkey rides on Alt Street! Thanks to John and The Loose Moose String Band for a great performance, to Saba (the donkeys!!!) and Saba, Ana, and Amel for organising us all.

What a community

St Bernard's Team Build

Another great team build this weekend with the home partners, their family and friends. Everybody worked so hard doing plaster boarding, painting, groundworks etc and learning new skills. Once again we enjoyed a fabulous lunchtime feast cooked by the home partners and family members and were joined by many of the children.

Working together towards a common goal is the foundation of HPBC. By doing this, community, friendships, and greater understanding follow.

Thanks to all who contributed to making this another productive and special day.

Well done to all our home partners and their family and friends.

It's been great to see HP neighbours Romena and Anna and their mums all working together over the last few weeks. We wish Anna's mama a safe journey back to Poland tomorrow.

Finally, congratulations to Romena & Awadh who have amazingly completed 180 sweat equity hours over the last 2 weeks, supported by their family and friends

Smithdown Road Primary School creates St Bernard's collage

It was a pleasure to meet with the children from Smithdown Road Primary School today to celebrate the unveiling of the collage they've produced on the development of St Bernard's.

The collage has taken pride of place in the reception area of our partner Onward's Liverpool HQ.

Thanks to Hampton NW Development for coordinating this piece of work.

The children are so excited about coming back to site to see the completed houses

Tell us what you want from a new home

Our multi award winning Kingsley Road community-led project of 32 homes in Toxteth, Liverpool is virtually complete and the final home partners have moved in. We’re proud to have created a new neighbourhood with a real community feel.

Currently we have no new homes available for sale. However we are actively exploring new sites and are in discussions to deliver more of our innovative homes, with prices kept low through sweat equity, volunteer labour and donations of money, materials and goods in kind.

A LARGE consignment of building materials worth around £5,000 has been donated to a Liverpool housing charity by DIY and trade retailer Wickes.

Housing People Building Communities (HPBC) has already used many of the building supplies at its 32 homes site off Kingsley Road, in Toxteth.  Larger items, including decking, laminate flooring and kitchen units will be sold via the charity’s Goods2go eBay store to raise much needed funds.
