The greatest barrier to social mobility in the UK is housing. Instead of housing acting as a barrier, The Holding Project (THP) sees housing as having the potential to be an enabler to social mobility. Similarly, we hope to foster discourse and changes in public opinion in Northern Ireland regarding the future of housing in a shared society.
THP seeks to build compact, eco-friendly micro-homes in Belfast for young people. As the millennial generation become trapped in private rented accommodation for the long term, the project hopes to offer an alternative form of housing as a mechanism towards enabling social mobility.
