Shaping Our City for 0-25 year olds

0-25 programme header

If you work with children, young people and families in Salford, 'Shaping Our City' will have some effect on you. Educators, health workers, volunteers, youth workers, social workers and emergency services are all involved.

We want children and young people to achieve their potential.

To give children and young people the best chance, organisations must work together. We're already doing well at this, but there's more we can do. We also want to make the most of Salford's resources. Read on to find out more.

Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)

Families will be at the heart of a better way of working. They'll be able to make choices that best meet their children's needs. We'll stop using formal 'panel' processes behind closed doors. Read more at

Speech, Language & Communication

We're looking at how schools, learning support, and therapists can work better together - between themselves and with families. From September 2017, a cluster of Irlam primary schools will test a possible new way of working.

Emotional Health & Wellbeing

We're working on a smoother 'pathway' for children and young people with emotional health needs. We want to help them build resilience and life skills so they can thrive. We want to support young people as soon as they need it, in a way that's right for them. We've agreed 'Ambitions' for how services will be delivered. And for young people who still need support as adults, we're improving the transition to adult mental health services. Read more at

F.A.C.T. Salford - Fuelling Ambitions Creatively Together

Young people from Kersal, Charlestown, Irwell Riverside and Lower Broughton have been developing their entrepreneurial ideas at The Albion Academy. They're working with Salford-based businesses.

From September 2017, FACT Salford will expand to six more schools. More businesses will get involved, and local community organisations will help mentor the young business leaders. Find out more at

West Locality pilot

Staff from different organisations are working together to provide Early Help to families. They're working in a team based in West Locality - Little Hulton, Walkden, Worsley and so on. To make sure everyone works together the team has a 'partnership agreement' and a shared manager.

Families talk about their strengths and needs using the new Family Assessment tool. Support is co-ordinated through 'keyworkers'.

The new Family Assessment tool was piloted in West Locality. It will now be used across Salford. Find out more in our short video:

The Bridge

Alongside these projects is The Bridge partnership. The Bridge looks at information held by different organisations. This helps us understand what's happening for families who we're working with.

Research with community organisations

We researched how Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations support children and young people in Salford. Our findings are influencing our plans. Read more at
