Behind the LifeCentre

“The Life Centre is a member of Salford Food Share Network, through which it works in co-operation with food crisis organisations across the city. It leads on the development of work around combating school holiday hunger. Together, the members of the food share network are working hard to make sure that nobody in Salford will go to bed hungry.”

‘The Life Centre provides our families and children with a crucial ‘hand of help’ during term time and the holidays. They provide invaluable information for our parents and fun opportunities and activities for our children. We are happy to support all that the Life Centre do and thank them for all the hard work they show to our community.’

The Lifecentre has been supporting the local community in Langworthy since 2000. Opened initially as a youth centre, it now provides a range of projects with and for local people. It is a registered charity with The Charity Commission (here), is part of the Salford Foodshare Network (here) and works with a wide range of partners including The British Red Cross, Salford CVS, Salford City Council, Salford NHS CCG and numerous local schools and churches in Salford.

The Lifecentre has a close partnership with Langworthy Community Church and is a Christian charity. The trustees and staff are motivated by a desire to see God’s love shared in Salford through acts of kindness, living goodness and standing up for justice in our community. The vast majority of our trustees, staff and volunteers live in Langworthy and Weaste.

The Lifecentre has a range of policies to ensure our work is safe and professional in all we do. To request a copy please email our Administrator on lifecentread@gmail.com. We have Public Liability Insurance and all our volunteers have appropriate training and DBS checks as needed.
