We want to make a real difference to the lives of Salford people, and to achieve this vision, we've identified our eight key priorities, which we've called the Great Eight.
Set by our City Mayor, Paul Dennett, these key priorities will guide us in allocating resources and agreeing our plans. They are also supported by the council's core values: pride, passion, people and personal responsibility, which underpin what we do and the way we work.
