About VOCAL Community Safety Forum

VOCAL Community Safety Forum was established in 2015 and aims to improve community safety and cohesion within the city of Salford 

It brings together voluntary, community & social enterprise (VCSE) groups working in local communities for mutual benefit, representation and to support their organisations development and capacity including the development of quality and good practice in their work.

It provides representation of the interests and views of VCSE organisations working with communities in Salford and represents these views to Salford Community Safety Partnership and other strategic or commissioning bodies as agreed by the Forum. 

VOCAL Community Safety Forum representatives aim to ensure that our service users interests are considered and our member organisation’s expertise and diverse experience fully informs commissioning and strategy and works with partners towards a more effective, joined up service to better meet the needs of and improve outcomes for residents of Salford .
