Our vision

We have a vision to create 'A better and fairer Salford for all.'

To help us achieve this vision we have identified some key priorities to tackle the problems people in Salford are currently facing, the Great Eight.

  • Tackling poverty and inequality
  • Education and skills
  • Health and social care
  • Economic development
  • Housing
  • Transport
  • A transparent effective organisation.
  • Social impact

Our values of Pride, Passion, People and Personal Responsibility clearly represent what Salford City Council stands for. They underpin the way that we work, make decisions and do business. They are embedded in our policies as well as the way in which we behave with colleagues, customers and partners - so that we live and breathe our values each day.

These values are reinforcing our culture and informing the way in which we are transforming our services so that they are quicker, easier and better. Pride, Passion, People and Personal Responsibility describe the personal qualities every employee is expected to demonstrate when carrying out their role. Putting the values in to practice across the whole organisation creates a supportive environment which allows us 'to be the best we can be.'
