  4. As the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme continues to roll out across the city, Salford NHS CCG has issued an update. New cohorts announced in Salford As of today, the Salford NHS Vaccination Service is pleased to announce that we have begun inviting cohort seven, which includes all residents age 60 years and over. We will continue to work our way through vaccinating cohort six (who were invited last week), which includes; adult carers; people invited for annual long term condition checks with their GP; and people invited by the NHS for an annual flu jab (excluding asthmatics). As always, patients within these cohorts are encouraged to book their appointments online ASAP at www.salford.nhsvaccinations.co.uk or alternatively by calling 0800 953 0116. Second doses Appointments for second doses will be offered from the end of March / start of April. Please ensure you remind people at all opportunities the importance of attending for the second dose, as this will further boost their immune system response and offer them a longer period of protection against COVID-19. Housebound Patients who are unable to attend a community vaccine site and have not yet had a home visit are now being asked to contact the telephone booking centre on 0800 953 0116, where we will review whether it is possible for someone to visit their home and give them their vaccine there. Meanwhile Salford Mayor Paul Dennett has shared the latest data on the vaccine roll out across Salford which reveals that as of Weds 24th Feb, there have been a staggering 45,020 doses of the vaccines administered across Salford's 3 community hubs in Eccles, Clarendon and Irlam as well as it's outreach sites. This is a phenomenal effort by any standards and with every jab, another Salfordian is given protection against the worst of the virus.
  5. Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett has pledged to continue the fight against homelessness as Salford marks World Homelessness Day (Saturday October 10.) Mayor Dennett said the council had faced one of its most challenging years ever with the impact of COVID-19 and that a tough winter could lie ahead. He urged anyone worried about debts to seek advice now and pledged to continue the drive to support rough sleepers and provide more affordable housing. This year Salford City Council was highly commended in the Local Authority of the Year award for its work on creating new homes and affordable housing and in tackling poverty which can lead to homelessness. The council’s supported housing team also won two team of the year honours in the national 2020 Housing Heroes awards for cutting rough sleeping by more than 80 per cent and helping over 900 homeless households into settled accommodation including 82 veterans, but Mayor Dennett said the council would not rest on its laurels because of the scale of the challenge. One of the biggest successes in tackling rough sleeping has been the Greater Manchester A Bed Every Night (ABEN) scheme, which Mayor Dennett described as ‘a lifeline.’ Salford also recently secured £417,440 of government funding to provide additional temporary accommodation for rough sleepers as well as longer term private sector options for them - the second largest allocation in Greater Manchester. Paul said:
  6. Renowned arts institution Islington Mill, in collaboration with Salford City Council have been awarded a £3.3m grant from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to create a new artist-led community around the Islington Mill site – ‘The Other City’. In what could be one of the last tranches of European investment money into the UK, the £3.3m grant has been awarded towards the £6.83m project to build what Salford’s City Mayor Paul Dennett has described as a model to help “communities resist gentrification”. In addition to renovating the Mill’s current role as a venue and workspace for artists The Other City will provide 25,000 sq. ft. of new creative workspace for creative SMEs . The ERDF funding supports the purchase and conversion of New Islington Mill to complete the heritage footprint of the historic mill and expand the Salford’s creative centre for generations of artists to come. Maurice Carlin, one of the founding Directors at Islington Mill said As one of the 16 remaining heritage mills in Salford, Islington Mill needed funding for refurbishment to sustain its artist-led community into the 21st century. Islington Mill sits in a part of Salford experiencing extensive change and development. The Other City is a key project in growing and sustaining Salford’s role as a ‘city of makers’, supporting the arts industry from through the productive stage and providing training opportunities, education and early job opportunities for budding young artists. Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett said: The project represents a true partnership with funds also being contributed by Salford City Council, Arts Council England, National Heritage Lottery Fund, Architectural Heritage Fund, The Women's Organisation, Islington Mill Arts Club, founder Bill Campbell, by the innumerable artists and their audiences who contributed gigs, performances and art works, and 100 Temporary Custodians who bought into a shared ownership art-work donated by Maurice Carlin.
