Springboard

Springbaord logoAbout the Springboard fund

On top of the £12 million a year that we're already investing in our homes with new kitchens, bathrooms and general maintenance, the Springboard fund is all about people and projects that will realise potential, create employment opportunities and positively contribute to our neighborhoods.

Our Springboard fund is perfect for supporting larger community projects, often awarding grants to local charities and community organisations to deliver projects that make a lasting positive impact. This funding can help organisations bring to life new projects or support the development of established projects which are at the heart of our communities. Partnership is one of our core values and we believe that lasting positive change is only achieved when we work together to help communities to realise their potential.

The average grant awarded from Springboard to successful applicants since it launched in 2018 is £7,000. Funding has supported bereavement support charity Cruse Bereavement, essential repairs to Hazelmere Community Centre and specialist domestic abuse training for Wycombe Women’s Aid. What could a grant from our Springboard fund make possible for your community?

We know that your time is precious and that time spent writing bids is time away from supporting your community, and this is why we're keen to provide as much help and guidance as possible with the application process. Please contact the team by emailing volunteering@redkitehousing.org.uk. We’d love to hear more about your project!
