We are Salford Foundation

We’re a charity providing opportunities for young people and adults to create better futures.

We've been helping people in Salford, Greater Manchester and the North West for over 30 years. By creating the right mix of opportunities, relationships and resources with people, we believe that everyone can reach their full potential. People are at the heart of all our work, shaping and co-creating what we do. We also have a fantastic network of businesses and volunteers helping us to achieve our goals.

Everything we do is driven and guided by our core values


Our doors are open to anyone who wishes to contribute to or use the service. Whatever your issue or situation, we welcome you and want you to feel at home.

Leading by Example

We aim to change the lives of young people and adults by inspiring and empowering them to succeed with confidence, through good leadership.

Working Together

We believe that real results come from people working collaboratively and creating solutions together... and by having some fun while we do it.

Professional & Responsible

We aspire to be the very best we can be. We provide a consistent experience, operating quality systems and standards.

Proud & Passionate

We are hugely passionate about our Foundation, and want to do great work that we all feel immensely proud of.

Proactive & Dynamic

We are solution-focused and use creativity and proactivity to constantly find better ways of working.
