As a community co-operative, we strive to ensure that everyone in Salford can get involved, share and develop their skills.

Volunteering is a key way you can support our work. We are always seeking volunteers for regular and one-off volunteering activities across our venues. Whether meeting  & greeting, helping out at special events or becoming a registered chaperone for Salford youngsters,  we are always looking for volunteers to remain at the heart of the community.

We are grateful for all the support that our current volunteers give and we hope that we will continue to attract volunteers across more areas of our work.
