Community hubs and volunteering

Thank you for your support

We would like to thank members of the public for their enthusiasm and commitment to supporting residents most in need. We have had an overwhelming response to volunteer, with more than 700 people now registered. This has ensured we can run our community hubs and deliver vital support and services.

If you would like to help us in the future you can register your interest at Wigan Borough Community Partnership's volunteer hub (external link).

What are community hubs?

The council is working with local community and voluntary groups across its neighbourhoods to coordinate support to its most vulnerable residents during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, providing essentials such as food parcels.

Our key workers will work alongside the voluntary sector to ensure residents are kept well and safe. The hubs are located in:

  • Wigan town centre
  • Leigh town centre
  • Ashton
  • Atherton
  • Hindley
  • Worsley Hall
  • Shevington.

What to do if you need support

If you’re self-isolating due to symptoms, or are classed as a vulnerable person, and have nobody to support you with food delivery or medical needs:

How can I help?

Our key workers and volunteers are operating the community hubs, but more volunteers are needed to ensure we can deliver this service.

We’re looking for fit and well residents to come forward and help us provide the necessary support and care for vulnerable households in their communities. All volunteering services will be delivered in line with national guidance.
