As a young person in Salford, you have the power to improve your community and the city.

To help your voice be heard there are different groups who want your help to run projects, plan events, and hear your opinion.

Salford currently has a series of different youth roles including Young Mayor and Member of Youth Parliament. We also have representatives on Greater Manchester and North West of England youth forums.

Strength, leadership, opportunities, teamwork, helpful - SLOTH
