Salford Volunteering Strategy 2017 - 2022

This Volunteering Strategy is intended to demonstrate a city-wide commitment to the importance and continuing future impact of volunteering for Salford.

It provides a framework of support for individual volunteers as well as organisations and groups working with volunteers across our city.

During 2008/9 the Salford Volunteering Strategy 2009-2012 was developed by a partnership working group, including members from Salford CVS and Volunteer Centre Salford, Salford City Council, Salford Foundation, Jobcentre Plus, Refugee Action, NHS Trust, Salford University and Salford PCT.

This refresh has been undertaken in 2016 by Salford CVS and Volunteer Centre Salford in conjunction with members of Salford’s current Volunteering Strategy Partnership.

This strategy has been drafted against the backdrop of the many challenges Salford is facing as a result of austerity, public service reform, welfare reform and Greater Manchester devolution; alongside opportunities devolution might present and whilst recognising Salford’s place as a growing city, with developments in the pipeline such as RHS Bridgewater.
