Community hubs and volunteering

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.
