Salford is a trailblazing city for social enterprise – not only was it designated in May 2015 the first ‘Social Enterprise Place by Social Enterprise UK (SEUK) in the North West, it remains the only accredited Social Enterprise Place in Greater Manchester.  In addition Salford has the most social enterprises in Greater Manchester – 14% of the VCSE sector in Salford identifies as a Social Enterprise compared to 8% across Greater Manchester (State of the Sector report 2017).
