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.
