Together we are working hard to make Salford a great place to live and work. Here are some highlights of our recent achievements:
The council was one of six local authorities chosen as finalists in both Local Authority of the Year and Most Improved Council of the Year at the Municipal Journals (MJ) Achievement Awards 2017.
The council was chosen in the Local Authority of the Year category for providing strong and effective leadership in taking a radically different approach to create a shared vision of “A Better and Fairer Salford”.
The council was also named as a finalist in the Most Improved Council category for its efforts to create the best quality of life for people in Salford. The creative use of technology and new partnerships has helped to develop a resident focused approach despite the council losing £186 million from government since 2010.
On 28 November 2016 the council won the 'Buy Social – Market Builder' category, at Social Enterprise UK’s 2016 Awards ceremony in London – recognising the council’s contribution in supporting social enterprises. We were able to demonstrate how we endeavour to create more opportunities to buy from social enterprises via our council-wide social value strategy and approach.
