About Caritas Salford

Who We Are

Caritas Diocese of Salford is the official charity of the diocese, which reaches from Didsbury to Clitheroe. Our vision is that the lives of all people should be free from poverty, disadvantage and discrimination. Our purpose is to help the most vulnerable children, young people and adults in our communities to transform their lives and fulfil their potential.

What We Do

Our service areas, as seen below, range from professional services commissioned by Local Authorities to volunteer-led community projects which enable communities to get involved in actively helping and shaping their neighbourhoods. Through our services, we aim to provide rapid and effective help to children, families and vulnerable adults live fulfilled and happy lives and to advocate for the rights of those who are not seen or heard

What We Believe

We draw on over 100 years of experience in supporting vulnerable people in the North West as well as Catholic Social Teaching to inform our beliefs on charity and justice. Whilst our values and rights are applicable to all people, we place particular emphasis upon them in relation to those who are most vulnerable
