Tackling poverty strategy

Our vision is to make Salford a fairer and more inclusive place where everyone can reach their full potential and live prosperous and fulfilling lives free from poverty and inequality.

Salford has become a leader in Greater Manchester for our pioneering approach to addressing poverty. Building on this success, we have updated our award-winning Tackling Poverty Strategy to continue to transform the way we do things in Salford; ensuring those with the greatest need are at the heart of everything we do as we recover from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This updated strategy continues to give poverty prevention and reduction the focus it truly needs and will play a crucial role in the city’s wider efforts to reduce inequality and improve the overall health and wellbeing of our local population.

We have built our plan around three strategic priorities which will take forward our collaborative approach with the people of Salford as well as vital services and partnerships across the city.

Our priorities for tackling poverty here in Salford:

  1. Preventing people from falling into poverty
  2. Provide targeted support for people struggling in poverty
  3. Campaigning for long term change in Government policies and practices
