Salford

Salford is becoming a Digital City, an ambition which forms part of a wider vision for a fairer and more inclusive Salford to improve resident’s lives.

Our Salford City group shares great ideas and considers the digital city and all aspects of City needs from its hospitals to its schools, from supporting its start-up community to its connected communities. We meet regularly, invite each other to our own organisational events and have an inclusive cross-sector space where learning and experience can be shared and solutions found.
