The Lower Kersal Young People and Community Group was set up in July 2004, to provide meaningful activities for young people in Salford.

The group has four major strands to its project work, these being:

  • Cooking & Healthy eating (Including putting young people and volunteers through food hygiene certification)
  • Growing fruit & vegetables through our allotment project.
  • Arts projects (Including film, drama, and visual arts.)
  • Managing twice weekly youth clubs.

The group also offers opportunities & mentoring to any and all community members, young and old alike.


The L.K.Y.P.C.G has been funded now for the last two years, thanks to the kindness of Vegware, enabling us to keep our allotment project running and helping members of the community to learn new gardening skills.
