Local neighbourhood scoops our top award

Salford's Salix Homes is celebrating after scooping our Platinum Neighbourhood Award, for their efforts to improve their local neighbourhood, Spike Island area in Lower Broughton. 

The prestigious award recognises and celebrates the country's very best social housing providers - working to create the cleanest, safest and greenest neighbourhoods. 

Judges were impressed by Salix Homes’ efforts to improve the neighbourhood, with regular litter picks, clean-ups and community events to encourage residents to take pride in their communities.

Each year their Love Your Neighbourhood campaign, sees the community join forces to celebrate their area. They've also recruited a network of volunteer Community Connectors to share their neighbourhood knowledge and highlight people's most important issues.

Sue Sutton, executive director of operations at Salix Homes, said:

“Salix Homes is passionate about building safe, clean, green and happy communities where our residents can be proud to live and work, so we are delighted to win this award in recognition of our efforts.

“We are dedicated to ensuring that residents are at the heart of our decisions, and one of the key reasons for the success at Spike Island is down to the partnership between residents and our partners, and this award is testament to everyone’s hard work.

“There is a real sense of togetherness at Spike Island and people have really bought into the ethos of “loving their neighbourhood”, which helps create real and lasting benefits to the community.”


Allison Ogden-Newton, Keep Britain Tidy’s Chief Executive said,

“We believe everyone deserves to live somewhere they can be proud of. If people care for the environment on their own doorstep – beginning with the street where they live – then the environment, the community and the individual will all benefit.
“With Salix Homes sharing our aims for cleaner, safer and greener neighbourhoods, we are delighted to award the Spike Island neighbourhood and Salix Homes with our Platinum Neighbourhood Award.
“We know achieving the high standards of this award is a real team effort – with Salix Homes, local residents and other partners working together to achieve fantastic things. Our congratulations go to everyone involved in achieving the Platinum Neighbourhood Award.”
