Owen Henry House

Our structure

Brighter Places was formed by the merger of United Communities and Solon South West Housing on 1 April 2021.

As Bristol-based ‘place-shapers’ with a heritage of providing local housing solutions, both housing associations were long-standing advocates for the communities within which they work.

Following  merger, Brighter Places is the largest housing provider solely operating within Bristol and surrounding areas.

We are a key partner for the local communities, authorities and agencies. We work to create vibrant communities and deliver sustainable housing solutions in these communities.

We manage 3,300 homes and provide a range of support services for residents. An ambitious programme of development means that we are set to deliver 1,000 new homes by 2027.
