The Launch of 10% Better in Salford

In November 2017 the Social Value Alliance launched the 10% Better Campaign  inviting organisations to come together to make a difference in Salford.  .

The campaign encourages organisations to use social value to achieve 10% better outcomes in Salford:

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

Each organisation pledges what they 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.

The event was supported by many organisations from across all sectors in Salford
