Building homes is just part of the story at Lendlease.


We use modern planning and community development methods to create safe, self-sustaining communities where neighbours have the opportunity to meet and become friends. Along with our Meet your Neighbours events, as the community continues to grow, you’ll have the opportunity to meet new people at a range of fun, social activities.

Community Grants Program

Have a community project or initiative you would like to get off the ground? Our Community Grants Program looks to fund programs, initiatives or events that benefit the community of Springfield Rise through improving social, environmental and economic outcomes. Since its inception in 2016, the grants program, which is administered by Bendigo Bank’s Community Enterprise Foundation, has provided funding of close to $79,000 across 19 different local initiatives. Projects that have been funded include native beehives for local schools and kindergartens, wildlife nest boxes, mentorship programs for youth, school diversity initiatives and wool supplies for a craft club who knit for disadvantaged groups, just to name a few.

More information and links to apply will be posted on this page closer to the grant round opening date.
