I am writing to thank you for what you have done for me. You have given me a life. I would not know where to begin to tell you what this means to me (my scooter). Without it, I do know that my life would be intolerable as I would be housebound again. I am now able to do a lot of things that I was unable to do before. Thanks to you I now can smile as life is better for me.

Haberfield House (formerly the Stockwood Project)

Bristol Charities will be developing an Extra Care Scheme for Older People on Hollway Road. Our population is ageing and people will need extra support to help them maintain active, safe and independent lives as they get older. We feel that the new development in Stockwood provides a great opportunity to enhance local facilities and provide better housing for people as they get older or their health circumstances change. 

The proposed scheme at Stockwood is on the junction between Hollway Road, Stockwood Road and Materman Road and shares a boundary on the East of the site with Bluebell Gardens - an existing scheme for older people. The site was chosen for the scheme because of the opportunity to link with the existing extra care project at Bluebell Gardens and also because it is in the heart of the community.

The development of a three storey building will provide 60 homes for Older People with Care available to those who need it. There will be a mixture of 1 and 2 bedroom flats available to rent and a number of flats will also be designed to be fully wheelchair accessible. 

The building will provide a range of communal spaces and support facilities for staff and residents. These include a communal lounge and dining area and hobby room. As part of the development, parking and a communal garden will be provided. 

It is important to us that we work in partnership with the local community, and that they are involved at an early stage to help inform the proposals as they develop.

The Stockwood Project (Haberfield House) Starts on Site

The Stockwood Project has now been officially named Haberfield House in recognition of the contribution to the project, made possible by the recent merger of Lady Haberfield Almshouse Charity with Bristol Charities. 

The project, a development of 60 one and two bedroom apartments with a range of communal spaces and support facilities is now on site. Keepmoat has been awarded the contract for the development of the site which is expected to be completed in the summer of 2018.
