  1. Salix Homes, which owns 8,000 homes across Salford and employs more than 300 people, has been unveiled as one of the Top 20 Gold organisations in the Investors in People Awards in recognition of the way it develops, supports and motivates its workforce. The prestigious accreditation means the organisation is now in the running for Investors in People UK Employer of the Year Award, and the shortlist will be announced in September. Sarah Henderson, director of Business Services at Salix Homes, said: The award comes following a rigorous assessment process by Investors in People – a framework which sets the standard for people management. The Gold standard is only given to those that can demonstrate a degree of excellence in the way they develop and support their staff. As part of Salix Homes’ ongoing commitment to supporting its workforce, it has also this month pledged its support to the Greater Manchester Employment Charter – a GM-wide initiative that aims to help employers grow and succeed through improved employment standards and increasing opportunities for employees. The social housing provider is a proud supporter of the Charter, which cements its commitment to making a difference in the lives of its employees by elevating employment standards in the key characteristics covered in the Charter, which are: secure work, flexible work, real living wage, excellent people management, workplace engagement and voice, excellent recruitment and progression, and a healthy and productive workplace.
  2. Social housing tenants in Salford are being invited to join a first of its kind Tenants’ Climate Jury launched by Salix Homes and the Northern Housing Consortium. The Social Housing Tenants’ Climate Jury will be made up of 30 tenants from Salford-based housing provider Salix Homes and four other northern housing associations: First Choice Homes, Karbon Homes, Thirteen Group, and Yorkshire Housing to consider how residents, social landlords and others can work together to tackle climate change in social housing. The project is being led by the Northern Housing Consortium which represents the views of housing organisations in the North of England. In particular, the jury will look at retrofitting energy efficiency measures to understand tenants’ preferences on how this work should be undertaken in their homes. Retrofitting existing homes is a key priority for the social housing sector, and it is important tenants are involved in how homes can be made more energy efficient as part of the sector’s contribution to fighting climate change. Retrofitting measures could involve making a home easier to heat with insulation or upgrading a heating system in order to make homes greener and warmer. Anne-Marie Bancroft, customer engagement manager at Salix Homes, said: The initiative is being facilitated by Shared Future - one of the UK’s leading experts in organising citizens’ juries. Salix Homes is sending out 1,500 letters to its residents inviting them to take part in the initiative. Of those who register to take part, Shared Future will then select six people from each housing association who reflect the diversity of residents living within social housing, both in terms of demographic make-up and their opinions on climate change. The Tenants’ Jury will meet 10 times over the summer for 30 hours’ worth of deliberation. They will listen to, and question invited expert speakers, discuss issues with each other, and will work together alongside expert facilitators to develop recommendations that will put forward their preferences, as social housing residents, as to how tenants, social housing providers, and others can work together to tackle climate change in our homes and neighbourhoods. The final report and recommendations of the Social Housing Tenants’ Climate Jury will be launched at the Northern Housing Consortium’s flagship Northern Housing Summit in November.

  3. A new housing development in Salford has seen all of its properties now sold or reserved. Poets in Swinton is the first new-build development from housing association Salix Homes, with all the new homes now snapped up by eager buyers. The 160-home mixed tenure development of two, three and four-bedroom properties, comprises of 120 homes for social housing rent, and a further 40 homes for outright sale, available through the Government’s Help to Buy scheme. The final 19 homes for off-plan sale were released in April by Willo Homes – Salix Homes’ new affordable home ownership brand - and all were reserved in a matter of weeks. Terry McBride, development manager at Salix Homes, said: The scheme has been part of a wider project to redevelop the surrounding Poets estate, which is also known as Beechfarm, and is so named due to the surrounding streets being named after famous wordsmiths. These include Shakespeare Road, Wordsworth Road and Tennyson Road. As part of the ambitious redevelopment scheme, 146 homes were demolished that had suffered historical structural issues, with the 160 brand-new homes built to replace them. Those residents affected by the demolition of the existing properties were given priority to move back into the new-build homes. Salix Homes is working alongside partner contractor Casey on the final phases of the development, which is expected to be completed later this year. Other affordable housing developments by Salix Homes now in progress, include the Artifex apartment block in Trinity, and Neighbourhood – a 157-home development earmarked for brownfield land in Seedley.

  4. Salford housing association Salix Homes is celebrating a double win in the prestigious Northern Housing Awards. Salix Homes, which owns 8,000 homes across Salford, won the Best Resident Involvement Initiative and the Best Digital Transformation categories in the awards, which celebrate the achievements of the housing sector in the North. The landlord scooped Best Resident Involvement Initiative in recognition of its pioneering Customer Committee, which was set up last year in a bid to give tenants a greater say in how its housing services are run. The Customer Committee has seen Salix Homes trailblazing a new approach to customer engagement, which was established ahead of national calls for greater transparency and for tenant’s voices to be better heard following the Grenfell Tower tragedy. The Customer Committee is made up of 12 residents in a paid-for role, on a par with the organisation’s board members, who can commission a piece of scrutiny work into any area of the organisation. The judges commended Salix Homes for its commitment to putting tenants first. They said: Salix Homes was also recognised for its digital innovation, which has seen the landlord launch a ground-breaking digital repairs service incorporating innovative chatbot technology; and becoming the first housing provider in the UK to fully embrace the public cloud. Judges were also impressed with the MySalix customer portal – an online platform which enables residents to manage their tenancy at the touch of a button or tap of a phone. Jim Battle, Chair of the Board at Salix Homes, said: Salix Homes is no stranger to awards, having already been named Digital Landlord of the Year in the UK Housing Awards 2020, and coming in at number four in the recent Top 30 Digital Housing Providers roll of honour, organised by Housing Digital.
  5. A leading figure in building safety has commended Salix Homes for its commitment to fire and building safety as the housing association announced the completion of its cladding remediation programme. Dame Judith Hackitt is Chair of the Industry Safety Steering Group (ISSG) and led the Government’s Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety following the Grenfell Tower Tragedy in 2017. In a letter to the Salford-based housing association, she said: Salix Homes has now completed the multi-million-pound cladding remediation and safety enhancement work across its tower blocks in Salford. The housing association owns 18 high-rise buildings, eight of which were deemed to have cladding systems that did not meet the Government’s test criteria. The affected blocks, the majority of which were only partially cladded in aluminium composite material (ACM), included Mulberry, Magnolia and Sycamore Courts in Pendleton, Blackfriar Court, Riverbank Towers and Newbank Towers in Greengate and Arthur Millwood Court and Canon Hussey Court in Islington. The cladding removal and remediation programme, supported by the Government’s cladding remediation fund, was completed across six of the blocks in autumn 2019 and was last month (April) finished at the remaining two blocks – Arthur Millwood Court and Canon Hussey Court. Sue Sutton, chief executive at Salix Homes, said: Remediation work at Arthur Millwood Court and Canon Hussey Court has been the most complex of the programme, carried out under the shadow of Covid restrictions, and has included the removal and replacement of the defective cladding system, the installation of sprinklers and the refurbishment of communal areas. New state-of-the-art fire alarm systems have also been fitted at all 18 of Salix Homes’ tower blocks as part of a wider safety enhancement programme. As one of the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government’s (MHCLG) Early Adopters initiative, Salix Homes is playing a key role in championing building safety culture change programmes across the sector. The housing association has been instrumental in the development of the national Building Safety Charter and the consultation process on the Government’s draft Building Safety Bill, after being selected initially as one of just three housing associations in the country to be part of the Government’s Early Adopters programme to test the recommendations of the Hackitt Review into building safety following the Grenfell tragedy. This has led to Salix Homes successfully implementing many of the new measures included in the Bill, such as establishing annual building safety inspections to all high-rise buildings and introducing a Mandatory Occurrence Reporting system to allow residents to report building safety issues directly to their landlord. Ms Sutton added: “As we approach the four-year anniversary of that fateful night of June 14, 2017, we are proud to have implemented and embedded a new standard of building safety, and we will of course continue to develop and raise our standards, working closely with the fire service, the Government, safety experts, and our residents, to ensure all our buildings continue to be safe places to live, both now and in the future.”
  6. An ambitious housing scheme to develop two brownfield sites in Salford has taken another step forward. Housing association Salix Homes and partner developer Step Places have completed the land transaction for the two parcels of land off Kara Street and Liverpool Street in Seedley South. The 3.8-acre site will be home to Neighbourhood – an eco-friendly scheme, which will see 157 homes built on the land, comprising social housing, homes for affordable rent and properties for Shared Ownership and outright sale. The community-focussed development will be a mix of two, three and four-bedroom homes and one and two-bedroom apartments. Sue Sutton, chief executive at Salix Homes, said: The innovative design is a modern take on the traditional terrace house, complete with rooftop gardens for some of the properties. There will be a public green space at the heart of the development and all houses will have cycle storage and electric car charging points. Harinder Dhaliwal, managing director at Step Places, said: In total, 91 of the properties will be shared ownership, affordable rent and social housing, while 66 will be available for market sale. Salford Council will purchase 25 of the homes for social rent, while a further five properties will go to Inspiring Housing Community Land Trust for a community-led housing model, which aims to support affordable homes for local people. The 32 Affordable Rent homes will be allocated via Salford Home Search, while the remaining properties will be available via Salix Homes’ affordable home ownership brand - Willo Homes. Work is due to start on site later this year and it’s expected the development will be complete in 2023.
  7. Salford housing association Salix Homes has scored a hat-trick of nominations in the prestigious Northern Housing Awards. Salix Homes has been shortlisted in three categories in the Northern Housing Awards, which recognise the achievements of housing providers in the north. Social housing development Joan Lestor House in Walkden has been named as a finalist in the Best Development for Social/Affordable Rent category. Salix Homes transformed the derelict former women’s refuge into nine apartments for social rent – some of the first new, social housing to be created in the area for many years. It has also been shortlisted in the Best Digital Transformation category in recognition of its technical innovation and digital modernisation strategy. Salix Homes’ digital journey has seen the landlord launch a ground-breaking digital repairs service – MySalix - incorporating innovative chatbot technology; and become the first housing provider in the UK to fully embrace the public cloud. The Salix Homes Customer Committee is also in the running for the Best Resident Involvement Initiative gong. The Committee was launched last year in a bid to give tenants greater influence in how housing services are provided. Sue Sutton, chief executive at Salix Homes, said: The winners will be announced at a virtual awards ceremony on Thursday, May 13.
  8. The legacy of one of Salford’s most revered sons will be immortalised in a new apartment block, which will bring more than 100 affordable homes to the city. Housing association Salix Homes has announced its new high-rise development in Trinity will be named Artifex in a nod to Canon Peter Green, who was a rector at the nearby St Philips Church, as well as a published writer and pacifist who was passionate about fighting social injustice. During the First World War and until the 1950s, Canon Peter Green wrote a weekly column in The Manchester Guardian - which was later to become The Guardian - under the pen name ‘Artifex’. He wrote about pacifism and compassion as well as articles about social injustice and women’s suffrage and is fondly remembered as a ‘real man of the people who loved the Salford people’. The 11-storey residential building forms part of the £22.5m Canon Green Campus development in Trinity, which has seen 1960s tower block Canon Green Court completely transformed and modernised for its existing residents, along with neighbouring apartment block Westminster House. Sue Sutton, chief executive at Salix Homes, said: Canon Peter Green was born in 1871 and served as the Rector at St Philips Church from 1911 – 1951, serving through two world wars in what was then a deprived dockyard community. He died in 1961. He dedicated his life to supporting impoverished communities and used his platform as religious commentator at The Manchester Guardian to speak out against war, hate, injustice and racism. He also wrote 38 books and served as a Chaplain to the King. During one column he penned in 1944 he spoke about the importance of prioritising housing as part of the Government’s post-war recovery and rebuilding plans. In it he said: This year marks the bicentenary of The Guardian, and The John Rylands Library, which houses The Guardian archives, will be celebrating the 200th anniversary with a special exhibition. Dr Janette Martin, modern history archivist (special collections) at John Rylands Library, which is part of The University of Manchester, said: The Canon Green Campus enjoys an incredibly rich history, and the new Artifex block is built on the site of the old Blackfriars Road Baths, which were demolished during the 1970s. Ms Sutton added: Salix Homes contractors Willmott Dixon are currently onsite and the Artifex block is expected to be complete this Spring. Once complete, the block will comprise of 108 one and two-bedroom affordable apartments, which will be available under the Rent to Buy scheme for expressions of interest from March. Willmott Dixon also carried out major improvement works to the refurbishment of Westminster House and Canon Green Court, which included new kitchens, bathrooms, heating systems, sprinkler systems and exterior re-facing and insulation. The new Artifex apartment block has been partially funded thanks to a £3.8million grant from Homes England. Salix Homes will be paying homage to the history of the site and the story of Canon Peter Green with a display in the lobby of the new block.
  9. A pandemic hero and Salix Homes employee who devoted his time to volunteering while on furlough has been named Volunteer of the Year in the Spirit of Salford Community Awards 2021. Steve Finbow, from Higher Broughton, has worked as our business change project manager for five years, but when he was placed on furlough last year he decided to put his spare time to good use and do his bit for the Covid-19 relief effort. He began volunteering at food poverty charity The Bread and Butter Thing (TBBT) last year, but when he was placed on furlough in April 2020 he was able to dedicate more time to the charity, signing up as their volunteer co-ordinator based at their warehouse in Trafford Park. Steve volunteered seven days a week, co-ordinating the other volunteers and sourcing donations. He also managed to grow the volunteering team from just a dozen when he first started to a 120-strong team operating 275 shifts a week. During 2020, the Bread and Butter Thing delivered 3.2million meals to people in need. Steve said: Since returning to work at Salix Homes, Steve has continued to volunteer for the charity in his spare time. Sue Sutton, chief executive at Salix Homes, said: Mark Game, CEO of TBBT said: Salix Homes tenant Susan Hinder also picked up a Spirit of Salford Award being named Neighbour of the Year in recognition of all she does to support her community in Pendleton.

The winners were announced at a virtual ceremony hosted by City Mayor Paul Dennett and BBC presenter Emma Goswell. Famous Salfordians Peter Hook, Catherine Tyldesley and Stephen Lord also joined the ceremony to pay their own tributes to the Salford heroes. View the full list of winners here
  10. A Salford housing association has launched a new affordable home-ownership brand to support its bold ambitions to deliver more affordable homes to help tackle the housing crisis. Salix Homes, which owns 8,000 homes across Salford, has launched Willo Homes in a bid to increase housing choice and deliver more affordable housing opportunities in the city. As a not-for-profit organisation, any profits will be reinvested back into improving homes and communities across Salford. Sue Sutton, chief executive at Salix Homes, said: Willo Homes will specialise in affordable homeownership options including Help to Buy, Shared Ownership and Rent to Buy, as well as homes for market sale. To coincide with the launch, Willo Homes has announced the first properties available for expressions of interest at Artifex – the flagship high-rise development in Trinity. The £15million apartment block comprises 108 one and two-bedroom apartments, which will all be available under the Rent to Buy Scheme. Rent to Buy is a government scheme designed to ease the transition from renting to buying a home by providing a subsidised rent at around 20% below the market rate. People will be able to rent the properties for five years at the reduced rate and then have the option to buy it after that period. Terry McBride, development manager at Salix Homes, added: Artifex is named in honour of the late Canon Peter Green – a much-respected writer and minister at the nearby St Philips Church. During the First World War and until the 1950s, Canon Peter Green wrote a weekly column in The Manchester Guardian - which was later to become The Guardian - under the pen name ‘Artifex’. He wrote about pacifism and compassion as well as articles about social injustice and the importance of housing, and is fondly remembered as a ‘real man of the people who loved the Salford people’. Willo Homes will also soon be bringing to the market the next available properties at the Poets development in Swinton – a mix of two and three-bedroom homes available for sale with Help to Buy. Contact the Willo Homes Sales Team, based at their Sales Suite at Artifex on Blackfriars Road, on hello@willohomes.co.uk, 0161 537 3123 or visit www.willohomes.co.uk

Salix Homes, which own and manages around 8,000 homes across Salford, was been named Digital Landlord of the Year at the UK Housing Awards 2020. The housing association picked up the prestigious accolade thanks to its innovative online services platform - MySalix.  The new and improved MySalix digital portal was launched in October 2019, and enables customers to easily manage their tenancy at the click of a button or tap of a phone. It includes an innovative chat-bot and webchat which means that tenants can save time booking repairs. The launch of MySalix followed a transformation of the organisation’s IT infrastructure to allow the housing provider to meet the demands of the modern world. Lee Sugden, chief executive at Salix Homes, said: The UK Housing Awards are the most prestigious awards in the sector and celebrate the very best teams and individuals in the UK housing sector. The first ever virtual UK Housing Awards were held on Thursday, 3 December and were hosted by comedian Rory Bremner.
  13. A man who hurled homophobic abuse at his neighbours has been hit with an Injunction Order. Housing association Salix Homes sought legal action against tenant Ryan Parker, of Whitefriar Court in Salford, on the grounds of his homophobic and threatening behaviour towards his neighbours and people visiting the tower block on Blackfriars Road. During a court hearing at Manchester Civil Justice Centre, the court heard how during one particular incident in August this year, Parker, aged 46, shouted homophobic slurs at one victim and threatened to ‘smash his face in’, which had left the victim feeling frightened and anxious. It’s not the first time Salix Homes has taken legal action against Parker, having previously secured an Injunction Order against him in 2017 after he assaulted another neighbour. At the court hearing in October, the judge granted a two-year Civil Injunction Order, which will remain in place until August 2022. Under the terms of the Order, which includes a Power of Arrest, Parker is banned from threatening violence, or engaging in abusive, insulting or homophobic behaviour towards his neighbours or anyone visiting Whitefriar Court. He must also not contact one of his victims, which includes on social media. Sue Sutton, deputy chief executive at Salix Homes, said:
  14. St James Lunch Club in Lower Broughton, Salford, dishes out more than 100 free hot meals every week to local people including the homeless, the elderly and families on low incomes. The church’s food pantry, which runs alongside the lunch club, provides a further 50 families with 10 essential food items for just £2.50 every week. The initiative is run from the church hall at St James Church, but until now the volunteers have struggled with a tiny kitchen limiting the number of people they can help. Now Salix Homes and our partner contractor Emmanuel Whittaker have come to the rescue to upgrade and extend the old kitchen facilities – enabling the lunch club to welcome even more people through its doors. Rev Christine Threlfall, who runs the initiative alongside a team of eight volunteers, said: The new facilities have also enabled the church to launch cooking classes to teach families how to cook fresh and healthy meals on a budget, using the ingredients available in the food pantry. Salix Homes has been working alongside Emanuel Whittaker to improve properties across Lower Broughton as part of its multi-million pound investment to homes and communities across Salford. Ben Cruickshanks, neighbourhood manager at Salix Homes, said: John Gallagher, contracts director at Emanuel Whittaker, added: The food pantry and lunch club runs every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday between 11am and 1pm to provide a free hot meal and companionship to anyone who calls by.
  15. Throughout the summer holidays, children and their parents attended the Marlborough Road Academy holiday club in Broughton where they could tuck into a free hot meal and enjoy fun activities with their friends, including sports, dance and arts and crafts. Salford housing provider Salix Homes provided the club with £500 to help fund the food and activities on offer as part of its Springboard community grant programme, which supports local projects that boost community spirit, promote health and wellbeing, reduce isolation or improve the environment. Mum Sahira Chaudhrey, attended the holiday club with her three young children. She said: Salix Homes also provided £600 additional funding through its Springboard programme to enable the children and their parents, along with other local families, to enjoy a day trip to Knowsley Safari Park to mark the end of the summer holidays. Saimah Alam, who also attended the holiday club with her children, said: Ben Cruickshanks, neighbourhood manager at Salix Homes, added: The newly-formed holiday club was set up by Salford charity The Life Centre, on behalf of the Salford Food Network, and delivered in partnership with the Broughton Team Churches, which includes St James Higher Broughton and St Clement with St Matthias Lower Broughton, along with Marlborough Road School and Audacious Church. The initiative also received support from Salford Community Leisure, The Rio Ferdinand Foundation, Tesco and Salford Council’s catering service City Wide.
