The idea of developing the irwell valley foundation emerged from irwell valley homes long history of improving the quality of life of residents through personal advancement and the development of pleasant and safe neighbourhoods.
The irwell valley foundation was established to support people finding local solutions to local problems and encourage positive change where respect, happiness, trust, wellbeing, access to education and employment are cultivated and celebrated through positive engagement with local residents, complementary agencies, services and others delivering projects in our neighbourhoods, We want our residents to feel happy in their homes and neighbourhoods.
Since its formation in September 2009, the irwell valley foundation has supported a number of community groups and individuals in a variety of ways whose work has formed the grassroots of real and lasting positive change.
