What is the Springboard Community Grant?

Springboard is our community fund programme that offers cash injections to much needed local groups and community initialtives that will improve our neighbourhoods.  

Who can apply?

Anyone can apply for a Springboard fund. It doesn’t matter if you’re an established community group, a charity, school, or just an individual with a great idea for a community project, you can still apply for a share of the funding pot. You don’t even have to be a Salix Homes tenant, as long as your project will benefit our communities.

  • Employment (i.e. training / equipment)
  • Supporting the local economy (i.e. helping local businesses)
  • Financial support (i.e. advice and support)
  • Environment (i.e. delivering environmental improvements)
  • Health and Wellbeing (i.e. sports or health clubs)
