Training in Salford

Salford CVS provides a high quality training programme specifically designed to meet the needs of Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations here in Salford. Our training is either free or competitively priced to support Salford VCSE organisations of all sizes to attend.

Current training opportunities include Child Protection, Adult Safeguarding, Trustee Roles and Responsibilities, Outcomes Star and Business Planning. We also provide regular sessions to support organisations successfully secure and generate funding. Our Volunteer Centre runs sessions covering good in practice in recruiting, supporting and managing volunteers.

Get Involved

In the last few months the VOCAL VCSE Leaders Forum in Salford have come together to draft a Manifesto for the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector. 

We have developed a VCSE Manifesto to highlight the ongoing contribution that VCSE organisations can make in Salford. The Manifesto is designed to clearly encapsulate what we think are the key messages we want to make, particularly to public sector colleagues. It challenges partners to effectively engage with and invest in the sector so that local people and communities can help to address the challenges and embrace the opportunities of the future as equal partners. 

Join Salford CVS today!

Salford CVS is a membership organisation and we have been proudly operating in Salford on behalf of our members since 1973. Membership is free and is open to all voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations who meet the definition of ‘not for private profit’ and who deliver services in the city of Salford.

As a membership organisation, Salford CVS’ key relationships lie with its member organisations and with the wider sector in Salford which comprises 1,364 VCSE organisations. We currently have around 600 members – all of whom are VCSE sector organisations that operate in Salford.
