Housing help for over 55's

As part of our Age Well service, we want to make sure that you continue to live safely and independently in your own home.

We can help you with:

  • Developing your skills to better manage your own home
  • Advising and assisting you to apply for home aids and adaptations
  • Volunteering and social activities
  • Accessing health, social care or other specialist support services
  • Claiming welfare and other benefits/grants you are entitled to, including budgeting advice.

If you are 55 plus and living in a Wigan Council Tenancy, you can refer yourself or someone else you know for support by filling in a referral form.

Community Activity Officers

Our friendly Community Activity Officers will be organising a variety of events and activities that are open to all residents of Wigan aged 55+ to promote health and wellbeing and ensure there are opportunities across the Borough for people to get together.  

They can assist with:

  • Finding out public transport information
  • Arranging community transport
  • Meeting and greeting people who are nervous about trying something new.
