Caritas is the Catholic social action agency for the Diocese of Salford.  Our mission is to help people living in Greater Manchester and Lancashire, who are experiencing poverty, disadvantage and discrimination, to transform their lives with dignity.

We provide a practical response to those in crisis, suffering hardship or who are at risk.  We rebuild lives for the long-term, enabling people to live in a safe, healthy and secure environment.

We call for a better, more just world where the voices of those we support are heard and acted upon, and positively influence the systems, decisions and resources that affect those in need.

We provide support to over 10,000 people per year and help them to transform their lives with dignity, overcoming poverty and disadvantage. 

As an independent charity, we would not be able to make long-term commitments to communities without gifts in Wills from people like you.
