Our Partnerships

Salford CVS works within a wider framework in terms of our membership of NAVCA and NCVO nationally and our membership of, and involvement with, GMCVO and other local infrastructure organisations across Greater Manchester (GM).

In January 2016 Salford CVS, along with the other GM local infrastructure organisations, created a new joint venture called 10GM.

The purpose of 10GM is to bring partners together to:

  • Increase the effectiveness of the VCSE sector in tackling/reducing inequality across the communities of Greater Manchester
  • Equip people and organisations within the sector to increase and demonstrate their impact on the lives of people who live work and study in Greater Manchester
  • Support a strong independent voice for the sector which can shape key areas of policy and decision making
  • Enhance communication and collaboration within the sector and with public, private and academic sector partners
  • Increase the effectiveness, sustainability and ingenuity of support to the sector in all boroughs

Salford CVS have signed up to the Declaration of Interdependence.

Led by Children England and the TUC, we are seeking to build a new relationship between the public and voluntary sectors, based on their shared public service ethos and skilled workforces.

We encourage other organisations to do the same and sign up to the declaration here.

Our Projects

Salford CVS plays a key role in a variety of projects and programmes with Salford and Greater Manchester including - 

  • Wellbeing Matters - includes a social prescribing approach which links statutory health and care services to the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector.
  • Answer Cancer - aims to increase cancer screening rates, particularly within communities where take-up is currently low. This initiative is a partnership of four VCSE organisations with over 100 years’ experience of supporting people across Greater Manchester: Salford CVS (on behalf of 10GM, a joint venture between the CVS’s of Greater Manchester); Voluntary Sector North WestBHA for Equality in Health and Social Care; and Unique Improvements social enterprise.
  • Age-Friendly Salford - Age-Friendly is delivered in a partnership led by Inspiring Communities Together with Age UK Salford and Salford CVS
  • History Makers - History Makers is a collaboration between Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, Salford Community and Voluntary Services (Salford CVS) and Voluntary Sector North West (VSNW). We aim to become the first city region in Europe to make smoking history. To do this we need to reduce smoking prevalence at a pace and scale greater than anywhere has done before.
  • Salford Third Sector Consortium-  Salford CVS currently provide hub services for the consortium under a service level agreement with the S3SC board.
