East Salford had a population of 37,629 in 2009, the largest of any of the eight Salford City Council neighbourhoods.

The area is made up of three electoral wards, Broughton, Irwell Riverside and Kersal. For statistical information on these, see the ward profiles which can be downloaded below. Each of the wards is represented by three councillors. Therefore, there are nine councillors representing the people of the neighbourhood.

With its large and diverse community, East Salford is a very dynamic area. It has its roots firmly bedded in the earliest days of the industrial revolution, has been and continues to be an area where people come to seek opportunities to improve their own and their family's lives.

With its boundaries meeting Manchester and Bury on three sides, the people of the neighbourhood are proud to call themselves Salfordians.

The community committee

People's strong sense of identity is reflected in all the activities that take place in the area. Groups of local people meet to do what interests them; others learn whether it's in school, college, university or at adult learning classes; folk work in the many businesses in the area and others play in the sports, leisure and entertainment facilities that the neighbourhood offers.

All of these interesting and interested people are able to meet at the community committee. Local people, representing a group or members of the public meet their councillors and officers from the range of services on offer, to talk about big and small issues that affect them.

Community committee meetings for East Salford are held bi-monthly. Anyone wanting to find out what's going on or get involved is invited to attend. For information about community committee meetings, including dates, times and venues, copies of the minutes, or information on how to join the mailing list, visit the get involved page.

What is East Salford like?

To help you answer that question, we have produced a profile of the neighbourhood, this is available to download below. This has all sorts of information in it.

If you are a member of a local group and are looking to apply for a grant it will certainly help you with some of the background information you may need to give.

We hope you find these pages interesting and you find what you are looking for. If you would like more information or just to chat to us, please telephone or email your East Salford neighbourhood team.
