This award recognises a truly inspirational Salford hero who has made an outstanding contribution to making the city a better place to live, work or visit.
In March 2019 we celebrated the unique Spirit of Salford at our community awards.
Taking place at the AJ Bell Stadium, the event was an opportunity to say thank you to the residents, community groups, volunteers and public servants who work tirelessly to make our communities great places to live, learn and work.
Our winners were announced at the awards ceremony on 14 March 2019.
