About Salix Homes

Who we are

Salix Homes is a multi-award winning social housing provider based in Salford, Greater Manchester. We’re a not-for-profit charitable organisation who put our customers at the heart of everything we do, from investing in our homes and communities, to how we go about providing our services.

We began our journey in 2007 when we launched as an arms length management organisation (ALMO) operating on behalf of Salford City Council.

Rethinking housing

As the world changes, this has prompted us to rethink how we provide housing services.

We believe we can find new and better ways to do things:

  • provide truly digital services
  • installing cutting-edge technology in our homes
  • re-purpose empty buildings to provide much-needed new homes
  • find innovative solutions to tackle issues such as homelessness

What do we do

Since 2015 we've invested £75m into our homes and communities. This made sure that all our homes meet the Government’s Decent Homes standard. 

We also provide jobs, apprenticeships and training opportunities for local people and we work with our partner agencies to help our tenants improve their own lives.
