3. Using our position to find housing solutions
Salford, our community, is one of the most deprived cities in the country, it is at the frontline of the housing crisis as it struggles with availability of housing and rising rents of private landlords.
We believe that everyone deserves a safe and secure place to call home and are maximising the impact of our position in the sector to improve access and experiences.
Our work in this area will support our ambition to ‘provide high quality homes for our customers’ as detailed in our Corporate Plan under the theme ‘Our Homes’ and continue to actively engage in the following:

Let Us are helping landlords raise the standard and to maximise the social impact their homes can deliver.
