Purpose of commission

The main purpose of the commission is to consult, advocate and engage with the city’s women on topics they feel are relevant to the safety, improvement and sustainability of services for their communities.

Our objectives:

  • Promote and raise awareness of women’s lived experiences of inequality here in Salford.
  • Hear from women of all backgrounds with a fully inclusive and diverse approach that recognises inequality as a multi-faceted issue.
  • Ensure women are included in shaping the recovery process from the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Positively influence and champion equality in all areas of life here in Salford, including putting forward recommendations to improve outcomes for women in Salford.

The commission is made up of a core group of 17 women from organisations across Salford’s community, business, public and private sectors. This group is formed from individuals with unique experiences who will take forward prioritised topics for further discussion and action. You can hear more about the commission from our chair, Councillor Sharmina August, Salford City Council Lead Member for Inclusive Economy, Anti-Poverty and Equalities.
