So what is Swap, Shop, Share about?

There are 100s of community venues in Salford; 37,000 volunteers and over 3,000 paid staff (FTE equivalent) in our sector; with a combined income of millions of pounds.

How many of those millions are spent in Salford? How many are spent purchasing off each other? We know that we can probably get more social value if we consider ways to ensure the flow of money in the local economy. If we can persuade more VCSE organisations in Salford to spend 10% more locally and socially, think of the difference that might make.


Do you have any resources that you could swap with another Salford VCSE organisation? E.g. you have 3 spare desks that you would like to swap for 3 filing cabinets


You need some additional admin hours, or to find regular room hire facilities – could you purchase these off a fellow Salford VCSE organisation?

The more you spend your money with other local VCSE organisations, the more you will be keeping it local and social.


Perhaps you have written a procedure or a job description that you don’t mind sharing with others? Maybe you’ve got some spare sports kit that you no longer use or you’ve grown too many seedlings for your gardening project that you’d like to give away to a local community group?

Are you interested in getting involved to help create a local VCSE internal marketplace?

Do you have something you want to offer?
