Saffron Housing Trust news

Chedgrave FB

Saffron Housing Trust have helped towards the completion of a revamped children’s play area in Chedgrave near Loddon after providing funding through their Community Improvement Grants.


In January 2020, Saffron Housing Trust launched its Community Foundation Programme to support the communities where it operates. One year on Saffron is proud to look back on what it has achieved.


Plans for 58 new, affordable extra care homes in Acle, designed to allow over 55’s to live independently, have been agreed by Broadland District Council.


Additional services

Saffron employs CAB advisors who are able to give tenants debt and financial advice.

Contact Care offer a lifeline service to East Anglian communities, helping people to remain independent in their own home.

Saffron also has a development arm called Crocus, which in addition to project managing some of Saffron’s developments also manages the PV scheme on over 800 of our homes. Pye Road provides a health & safety and fire risk management consultancy service.

Why we joined PlaceShapers

We joined PlaceShapers originally as the ethos behind the organisation fitted well with our beliefs about local community involvement and development. Since then PlaceShapers has grown into a much larger and influential version of that original intention that is really listened to and valued in the sector. The key to the on-going success is the ‘self-help’ nature of the organisation that encourages learning and visits between members that helps each member locally to support the communities they work in.
