Caritas Challenge

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintEmail

The Caritas Challenge is a new initiative by Caritas Diocese of Salford to promote the true value of giving and the real meaning of Charity.  As an organisation Caritas Diocese of Salford draws on over 100 years of experience in supporting vulnerable people in the North West and currently operates twenty one projects with paid staff and volunteers to support those most in need in our community.

The focus of the first Caritas Challenge is an inspirational new development called 463. This is a new and invaluable service that will provide a home for young people with life-limiting conditions. Although these young people live with the uncertainty of life itself on a daily basis there is little or no support available should they choose to live independently.  463 is fully equipped and staffed to cater for those with the most complex needs enabling us to give the young adults who live there a home for their whole life. This is the first service of its kind in the country and is beginning to generate media and professional interest. Although this service will receive some funding from statutory services it is largely dependent on the generosity of supporters and those of you who will rise to the Caritas Challenge.

Dignity or Slavery - does work still work for the Common Good?

Writer and journalist Paul Donovan has called on the Catholic Church hierarchy to speak out for ordinary people struggling on low pay and poor conditions in the workplace. “The way people are treated at work has implications for family life across the country and the common good generally," said Donovan.

Cherishing Life at 463

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintEmail

One of the most vulnerable groups of young adults are people with life threatening and life limiting medical conditions. On a daily basis they live with the uncertainty of life itself.

Many have little support or quality provision outside of their family once they have become adults.  They leave the relative security of school and children’s social services and in the adult world face social isolation and a lack of independence.

With no immediate family or anyone to effectively advocate for their needs, they can be left to struggle on alone.
