The Listening Hub

Help level-up our listening hub

Welcome to the Listening Hub. We want to hear your voice!

The Salford Safeguarding Partnership (SSCP) works with a wide range of partners and is committed to promoting engagement and participation from a wide range of professionals and those that live in Salford. We believe that children, young people, families, carers, and local communities in Salford need to be listened to so that we can understand what matters and can make a positive difference to people living in Salford.

We have developed a virtual 'Listening Hub' with a wide range of partnership agencies to ensure that each partnership is Listening and more importantly what action/s are being taken from what is being heard. We want to see the positive changes to enable children and adults to thrive and flourish.  What you tell us will also enable us to prioritise what really matters to you living in Salford and will direct the focus of our work across a range of partnerships and professionals.

Please watch this short animated video to learn more about the Listening Hub.

The Listening Hub pages on this website are being developed so that you can engage with online. Consultation and feedback events will also be detailed here.

Listening Hub Consultations and Events

Salford Adolescent Strategy Consultation - July 2022

An Adolescent Strategy for Salford is currently being developed, to set out how partnership agencies can best work together to support young people in the City.  The SSCP sought to hear from a range of young people to help inform the strategy.  A short survey was developed to gather these views.  The survey closed on 24th July 2022.  A second survey for schools will be distributed in September 2022.

Emotional Health and Wellbeing - 7th March 2022

The Salford Safeguarding Children Partnership (SSCP) held a Listening Hub event at The Lowry, Salford, entitled "Emotional Health and Wellbeing".  The event was aimed at children in Year 6 and above, young people, parents and carers as well as professionals working with children and young people in Salford.   

Listening Hub Launch - 25th November 2021

This Lunch Bowl launched the Listening Hub and showed an animation video produced by young people and parents to illustrate the purpose and vision of the Listening Hub and provided their views of why it is important to listen to their voices.  

Feedback and analysis from young people, parents and professionals from the  “Keeping children safe online” event was shared, as well as the Salford Listening Standards and Listening Loops. Partnerships and organisations were encouraged to adopt the Listening Loops, to enables greater listening, action and feedback to children, young people and adults. 

From this event further networking with other partnerships have been made who will be joining the Listening Hub. We want to ensure that we are capturing the views and voices of a wide range of children, young people, parents/carers, and those with lived experiences in Salford. This include parents and carers voices such as the 'Salford Parents for Positive Change' group. Any parents that wish to join or want more information about this group please get in touch, contact details are available on the Parent and Carers page

Keeping Children Safe Online - 29th October 2021

The first Listening Hub event was held as a hybrid event at face to face at The Beacon Centre and online with young people, parents and professionals. There were approximately 20 participants who all actively engaged with four questions that were posed regarding online safety. The focus was on listening to the voices of young people, parents, and professionals.

A report has been produced which captured the feedback of all attendees. From this a short presentation summarises the feedback and next steps. It was evident that this work will need to continue with young people leading this with parents and professionals. A "Listening Loop" will be completed to ensure focus and continuity. It is also hoped that partners within the Listening Hub will stay connected with this work. 

There will be further events throughout next year.  If you have any thoughts, views ideas about these we want to hear from you.  Please contact thelisteninghub@salford.gov.uk We look forward to hearing from you.
