“I know all about the University of Salford’s fantastic work in encouraging students and social enterprises to think carefully about how responsible business practice can benefit wider society.
Their social impact is particularly evident through their very strong community focus. For example, 42% of students are from lower income families and/or first from family to go University. At least 40-50% of their students are from the local catchment area. In addition, the University enjoys double the national average (which is 7%) of students from a care background.
University of Salford is also to be recognised for their commitment to the Living Wage, which is paid throughout their organisation and in their supply chain.”
