#SalfordStories Activity Timetables

We have created weekly timetables of activities that support the wellbeing of adults and young people in Salford.

The timetables include activities from local charities, community groups and social enterprises that have been supported by the Third Sector Fund (administered by Salford CVS and funded by NHS Salford CCG).
