Who are we?

Following the closure of Salford Cathedral Drop-in Centre ‘Salford Loaves and Fishes’, a company limited by guarantee, was formed, bringing with it a wealth of experience and expertise.  Salford Loaves and Fishes is also a registered Charity.

Resolved to carry on this valuable work with homeless and vulnerable people, Salford Loaves and Fishes teamed up with Manchester City Mission, who, after consultation with the local community, identified a need in the local area for a drop-in centre offering provision for homeless and vulnerable people.  Salford Loaves and Fishes and Manchester City Mission formed a collaborative working relationship and launched the Windsor Drop-in Centre in February 2007 in the heart of residential and commercial Salford.

In April 2016 the collaborative working arrangement with Manchester City Mission ended and currently Salford Loaves and Fishes are located in temporary accommodation within the vicinity of Salford on Mona Street while we await completion and renovation of our new building located on Paddington Close, Salford. 

Our Christian ethos ensures an unconditionally positive, accepting and non-judgmental approach and strives to support clients in reaching their full potential. Our centre is open to people of all faiths or none and strives to be inclusive.
