Neighbourhood Renewal Fund
The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) introduced the Neighbourhood Renewal Fund in 2001-02 to narrow the gap between the most deprived areas and the rest of the country. The Fund came to an end in March 2008.
In Salford the fund supported the key strategies and activities identified in Salford’s Neighbourhood Renewal Strategy (which is available to download below) and Community Plan. In particular the programme focused on the following areas: economic development, lifelong learning, children and young people, health, crime, social inclusion and living environment. Below are some of the projects that received NRF support:
- Community groups and organisations providing activities for children and young people.
- Events in local parks for all the family.
- Anti-social behaviour projects and support for victims of anti-social behaviour.
- Community food activities.
- Smoke free homes initiative.
- Salford Construction Partnership.
Working Neighbourhoods Fund
As part of a concerted drive to tackle worklessness, low skills levels and enterprise in the most deprived areas. Government has decided to establish a new Working Neighbourhoods Fund (WNF). The new fund will replace Communities and Local Government's NRF and incorporates the Department for Work and Pension's Deprived Areas Fund. Salford has been allocated Working Neighbourhoods Fund as part of the Area Based Grant. The fund will be a key means used by the council and it’s partners to progress the skills and worklessness agenda for local people.
