Responsible Homes build flats for young professionals who want to get on the housing ladder but have no chance of raising a deposit.

The flats are discounted by a third and tenants put the third that they are saving into a Help to Buy ISA.

In three years, they should have saved enough to put down a deposit on their first home.

Responsible Homes is run by long-time Bath Rugby Foundation supporters Mark and Melanie Barnett.

They said: “We have supported the Bath Rugby Foundation for several years, funding a number of initiatives with the team.

"The 1st XV initiative enables like-minded supporters of the Foundation to pool their resources to tackle bigger challenges in our area and inspire young people to create a better future for themselves.”
