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.
