We provide free, confidential and impartial advice to residents of Salford, and campaign on big issues affecting people’s lives. Our goal is to help everyone find a way forward, whatever problems they face.
People come to us with all sorts of issues. You may have money, benefit, housing or employment problems. You may be facing a crisis, or just considering your options
It doesn’t matter who you are, or what your situation is, Citizens Advice Salford will always give you free, confidential and impartial advice.
We value diversity, promote equality and challenge discrimination wherever we see it. We aim to be sustainable, efficient and effective in everything we do.
Volunteer, employee or supporter, we all believe in the same thing; a society where everyone gets the advice they need, and every voice is heard.
We use our client’s experience, stories and evidence to research and campaign for positive change.
We contribute to national campaigns and have helped bring about a cap on the cost of payday loans, the end of retaliatory evictions and greater protection for mobile phone customers.
We also use local people’s experience to lobby locally around issues such as housing and homelessness or problems people have with claiming benefits.
Every year up to 80 volunteers support the delivery of our work alongside a team of paid staff. Our volunteers come from all sorts of backgrounds and help with everything we do; ICT, administration, fundraising, trusteeship – and of course giving advice. Together the work they do helps us to assist almost 20,000 people each year, without their passion and generosity, we wouldn’t be here today.
Our volunteers benefit from the experience too – for example all our retired volunteers tell us that volunteering keeps them mentally active and nine in ten unemployed volunteers believe it helps them to move into employment of education.
It is very easy to apply to join us as a volunteer and we recruit throughout the year.
We’re an independent charity, and our success depends on support from people like you. There are different ways you can get involved.
