Salford CVS’s Social Value Programme and One Page Social Impact Reports
Salford CVS are supporting voluntary and community groups, social enterprises (VCSE) and public sector organisations in Salford to understand and promote their Social Value. One of the most popular tools they have introduced to Salford is the One Page Social Impact Report. The concept behind One Page Social Impacts Reports was developed by our friends at Intentionality.

Salford Council Health Improvement Team’s Red Pepper Project
The report provides a summary of the findings from a Social Value evaluation, undertaken by Salford Health Improvement Service. It assesses the social and economic impact of their family weight management programme, ‘Red Pepper’.
- To help children who are above a healthy weight to reduce their BMI
- To support families to make healthy lifestyle changes
- To build positive networks and partnerships
- To be a responsible employer and contribute to the Salford economy
The evaluation has demonstrated the potential for a relatively small, community based provision to make a contribution to local strategic priorities not only in the field of health and wellbeing, but also in the wider social economic environment.
Salford Community Leisure is Dementia Friendly
As a committed partner to the Salford Social Value Alliance they are focussed on improving the health and well being of residents to enable them to lead healthier and more active lives with less need for reliance on support services. For example they work with many people living with dementia and run projects including;
- Memories Matter
- House Of Memories
- Dementia Friendly Swimming
- Healthy Hips & Hearts
SCL are committed to being Dementia Friendly. A programme of internal training is well underway to ensure their employees are aware of issues that may affect people living with dementia and how best to accommodate their needs in their venues and services. They are also auditing their venues to see how they can make them as accessible and user-friendly for people living with dementia as possible.
