Salford Unemployed & Community Resource Centre Press Releases

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.
That need still exists and SUCRC has stayed true to its original vision.

We have been referred to as the "fourth emergency service" in Salford

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.

Who We Work With

We work in collaboration with a range of organisations that share our aim to support our community. These include statutory and voluntary organisations.

This partnership approach is vital as it means we avoid duplicating existing work and our clients can access the fullest possible range of support as we all complement and collaborate with each other rather than compete.

We are democratically organised and accountable to our members through our management committee. As well as our dedicated staff team, SUCRC relies on volunteers from within our community. Our Volunteers Charter ensures they are treated fairly.

What People Say About Our Work

SUCRC has been a beacon of our community for many years…it’s a one stop shop for advice, welfare and a host of other services. Many of the council's services refer clients to SUCRC…In these times of austerity their work has never been more important
