Local News

 As part of Salix Homes’ ‘Love Your Neighbourhood’ initiative, the housing provider, which owns more than 8,300 properties in central Salford and Swinton, has earmarked a funding pot to be split across its neighbourhoods and local youth projects in the area.

The money can be used for projects that will boost community spirit, improve the environment, reduce isolation and promote health and wellbeing.

Warren Carlon, service director for communities at Salix Homes, said:



“In a time of austerity and budget cuts, Salix Homes is very proud to be able to offer the Springboard fund, which could provide a lifeline for local groups and projects in our communities.

“Whether you’re a community group struggling for funding or an individual with a great idea to improve your neighbourhood, I’d urge you to apply to the Springboard fund.

“We want to help local people and groups to continue the excellent work they do to strengthen the sense of community in Salford and encourage people to love their neighbourhood.”



Grant applications under £1,000 will be approved by Salix Homes’ neighbourhood teams, and any bids over £1,000 will be approved by the housing association’s Customer Excellence Panel.

You can apply online at www.salixhomes.org or contact the neighbourhood teams for an application form on 0800 218 2000 or email enquiries@salixhomes.org
