10% Better in Salford

We want to use social value to make it 10% better in Salford:

  • Better for people
  • Better for the planet
  • Creating local prosperity

You can pledge what you can to make Salford 10% better. It doesn’t sound much, but if all businesses, schools, hospitals, councils, community groups, etc, committed to do just one thing, then together we can make a real difference.
