Vision - A robust voluntary, community and social enterprise sector that meets the diverse needs and aspirations of the people of Salford
Salford CVS is a charitable company and our organisation is therefore governed by our Articles of Association. Included in this document are the organisations’ overarching charitable objects, which are:
1. To promote any charitable purposes for the benefit of the public principally but not exclusively in the local government area of Salford and its environs (area of benefit). And in particular, build the capacity of third sector organisations and provide them with the necessary support, information and services to enable them to pursue or contribute to any charitable purpose.
2. To promote, organise and facilitate co-operation and partnership working between third sector, statutory and other relevant bodies in the achievement of the above purposes within the area of benefit.
a) 'Third sector' means charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises.
b) 'Charities' are organisations which are established for exclusively charitable purposes in accordance with the law of England and Wales.
c) 'Voluntary organisations and social enterprises' are independent organisations, which are established for purposes that add value to the community as a whole, or a significant section of the community, and which are not permitted by their constitution to make a profit for private distribution. Voluntary organisations and social enterprises do not include local government or other statutory authorities.
