Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre (SUCRC) was formed in 1980 by the local community during a time of economic recession when there was a desperate need for self-help, information and advice on dealing with unemployment.
Here's what we do at Salford Unemployed & Community Resource Centre
Thousands of dismissed and victimised workers have been represented in the workplace and at tribunals by the SUCRC staff, and thousands of pounds compensation has been won back for those clients.
The Centre recognises the complicated Welfare Benefits System, and has a designated worker and trained volunteers who provide a range of information, guidance and advice on all aspects of benefits.
Unfortunately, debt has become a common issue that is dealt with on a day to day basis by the staff and volunteers at the Centre. We have been able to assist thousands of people begin to get their life back in order.
Each of us is unique in the way we experience life, gather information, learn and respond to events. We recognize this at the Centre and we help adult learners to better understand their personality styles and learning styles.Learn More

Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre was established in 1980, at a time when Britain was blighted with job losses and mass unemployment.
It continues its work today, campaigning, supporting, advising and representing unemployed and employed people. Working with some of the most vulnerable people in society, the Centre is regarded locally as the fourth emergency service.
SUCRC offers a range of support services for our community, including older people, people with disabilities, unemployed people and workers who are facing difficulties. These include educational facilities, advice & representation for people facing problems in a wide range of fields.

We also run Salford Prison Project which supports ex-offenders.Learn More
The aim of the Project is to support offenders who do not normally receive statutory supervision from the Probation Service but have high rates of reconviction.
SUCRC offers practical solutions to the issues local people face, for example through advice on benefits, links to credit unions and informal education sessions including community based workshops on subjects such as CV writing, English as a second language and confidence building.
