Jigsaw Foundation is an exciting new £500,000 fund to support local projects run by charities, resident and community groups, voluntary organisations, social enterprises and partner agencies.

It replaces our former GREAT Neighbourhoods fund and Breathe Investment Grants.

Applications will open on 3 April with funding up to £25,000 voted on by tenants through our Jigsaw Rewards surveys.  Entries over this amount will be approved by Jigsaw Homes Group’s Executive team.

Applications will also be assessed alongside Jigsaw Group’s new neighbourhood plans, also due to launch in April.

Jigsaw Foundation supports Jigsaw Group’s vision of ‘We want everyone to live successfully in a home they can afford’ and mission of ‘Creating homes. Building lives.’

Take a look this video to see some of the projects we’ve supported through previous community investment funds.
