Tackling poverty in Salford

Private rented sector report launch

Precarious Lives: Exploring lived experiences of the private rented sector in Salford by the Salford Anti-Poverty Taskforce.

The report, which can be downloaded below, is the first project to be completed by the Salford Anti-Poverty Taskforce, a collaboration between Salford City Council and the University of Salford to provide high quality research and analysis to support Salford’s anti-poverty strategy No-one Left Behind.

Salford has seen significant public and private investment over the last ten years which has helped to create more new jobs and opportunities than ever before - but not everyone is sharing in the benefits of this growth.

High levels of poverty and inequality still exist in many parts of our city. Salford City Council and our partners are determined to tackle this.

Read our new tackling poverty strategy below to see how we're going to do it.
