Animals in distress
This charity was founded in 1967 to alleviate the suffering of sick and injured animals. Their work includes 24-hour rescue, veterinary treatment and neutering. They look after strays, abandoned animals and cruelty cases in the city.
Salford Loaves and Fishes
This charity brings together a wealth of experience and expertise working with homeless, vulnerable and isolated people in the city. They have supported many people, embracing, empowering and offering hope to those in need.
Salford Children’s Holiday Camp
The holiday camp was established in 1926, by way of an endowment of an area of land on the north Wales coast at Prestatyn. 'The Jam Butty Camp' as it is affectionately known was set up to provide respite for the poor children of industrial Salford and continues to help many children living in poverty today to enjoy a well-deserved break by the seaside.
