We make support and services available for all of Wigan’s unpaid adult carers, young carers, professionals and employers who work with carers.
Local community relationships are extremely important to us and mean we can offer carers the best accessible services, wherever they live in the borough and surrounding areas. We work in partnership with local statutory agencies and other voluntary organisations to deliver our services to the highest level.
In November 2020 Wigan and Leigh Carers Centre merged with Wigan and Leigh Young Carers to become a recognised centre of excellence, providing ‘one voice for carers’.
Carers are at the heart of everything we do. We care deeply about making it our mission to make a positive difference to the lives of both young and adult carers in Wigan borough.
Our primary aim will always be a commitment to the needs of carers, respecting their wishes and choices about how they want to receive care and support. We will always look at the individual and what’s important to them in their life.
Our vision is to empower carers with a range of support and life opportunities. All carers should feel enabled to fulfil their caring role as effectively and happily as possible. We never lose sight of what’s important to carers such as activities, hobbies and their personal choices, and we actively seek to gather these views. These details are a valuable guide and will ensure we provide the best possible support to enrich carer’s lives.
We believe that carers themselves are the most powerful force to shape the delivery of our services. In everything we do, we are led by carers, ensuring they have choice, control, and a voice as experts in care.
