• The Seedley and Langworthy Trust was first created in 1997 to support the regeneration of a deprived area of Salford, this year named the second poorest in the UK.

    After receiving a three-year £390,000 Lottery grant in 2009, SALT was able to develop a number of innovative projects.

    These included Seedley and Langworthy In Bloom, which has won the North West Regeneration category of the national In Bloom competition for the last decade. SALT also provided a benefits advice, advocacy support, and a job search service.

    However, following the end of their funding, SALT is now facing an uncertain future. The community are deeply concerned that the good work of the past few years will slowly be undone.

    These case studies were developed in July 2011 as part of a joint anti-tax evasion campaign by Church Action on Poverty and Christian Aid.
