10% Better Campaign

We want to tackle the inequality and poverty in Salford and improve wellbeing and quality of life for the people who live here and our aim is to maximise the local benefit from all money spent in Salford. If we can involve the many private sector businesses, public sector organisations, as well as voluntary and community groups and social enterprises working here in Salford, our chance of success will be greater.

So we are asking you to lead your organisation in pledging to make Salford 10% Better.

Our aim is that by 2021 there will be:

4,690 MORE people volunteering in Salford

6,300 FEWER inactive people in Salford

At least 25 MORE formerly NEET 16 and 17 year olds from Salford going into employment, education and training every year

At least 1,570 MORE Salford residents paid the Living Wage Foundation ‘real’ Living Wage

19,000 Salford adults aged 16 and over saying that they feel MORE satisfied with their life than they did last year

780 MORE people from vulnerable groups in Salford accessing new jobs, apprenticeships, training and work experience placements

42 kg LESS waste generated by each Salford household every year

3,450 tonnes MORE Salford waste recycled

2,280 MORE people out of their cars and instead using green methods of transport to work

1,130 FEWER Salford households living in fuel poverty …AND with local companies having local supply chains, we want to INCREASE the GVA per head for Salford people by £2,353

It doesn’t matter how small your pledge, every little action will help towards us to make Salford a better place.
