About Us

Salford Foundation is a social inclusion organisation that provide opportunities for young people and adults in Salford and surrounding boroughs to develop social, academic, vocational and personal skills.

The Foundation engages with business and the wider community in shaping and delivering its services – many of the Foundation programmes include significant volunteer support with a particular focus on mentoring.

Working with the Foundation provides business with an opportunity to maximise their corporate and social responsibility practice, engage with local people and their communities, to promote the professional development of staff through volunteering and to raise the public profile of their companies within communities and through the media.

Our work in schools focuses on the development of work related experience and enterprise to put the curriculum in a real world context or supporting individual children and young people to address issues of self-esteem, school engagement and attainment.

Through a range of intervention and prevention programmes the staff at Salford Foundation also support young people and adults who are both hard to reach and hard to engage. We  provide bespoke and tailored support to assist individuals to progress and develop socially, as well as access new learning opportunities. The work of the Foundation has a positive impact on individuals and families.

Our work with adults not only addresses the challenge of developing confidence and skills to access employment and learning opportunities, but also addresses issues of offending and reoffending, potential family breakdown and offers a range of services in support of vulnerable women.

The Foundation places the needs of service users first and foremost both in the development of provision and in their ease of access to it.

The Foundation values the contribution that businesses and members of the local community make in supporting our programmes of work. Together we work with children, young people and adults to maximise their potential and provide bespoke support to take individuals on a journey from where they are now to where they want to be by opening the doors to opportunity..
