About Caritas Salford

Our Vision

Our vision is for a society where there is justice and equality and where the voices of those experiencing poverty, disadvantage and/or discrimination are heard valued and acted upon so that all people can live in peace and dignity.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help those across the Diocese of Salford, experiencing poverty, disadvantage and discrimination to transform their lives with dignity.

We provide a practical response to those in crisis, suffering hardship or who are at risk. We rebuild lives for the long-term, enabling people to live in a safe, healthy and secure environment.

We call for a better, more just world where the voices of the poor are heard and acted upon and positively influence the systems, decisions and resources that affect those in need.

Our Objectives

In 2021 we discerned our core objectives for the next three years to be to:
·        Reduce poverty, disadvantage and discrimination in our Diocese to enable people to ‘live life to the full’
·        Increase awareness and understanding of Catholic Social Teaching and Animate the Diocesan Community to take practical action.
·        Become a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves, empowering people and advocate for justice and social change
·        Become a sustainable and more visible and effective catalyst for change.
