Where we can help

Outline of Greater Manchester and Lancashire locations where Caritas services operate

Our name – Caritas Salford – is reflective of the fact that we’re the domestic social action charity of the Catholic Diocese of Salford.

Our reach though, spans not just Salford, but right across the diocese, taking in most of Greater Manchester and parts of Lancashire too.

We’re really proud to be able to work in the heart of communities across our area.
