Abram CommunitieS Together

Abram Communities Together is a community group designated as the Neighbourhood Forum for the Abram ward. The group was officially designated as the Neighbourhood Forum for Abram in August 2015 and has since been redesignated until 6th November 2025.

Abram Ward is home to some beautiful, biodiverse habitats and countryside which need ongoing protection and enhancement. We want local people in Abram Ward, across the Wigan Borough and regionally to be able to appreciate and enjoy these internationally significant landscapes, green and open spaces more, through improved access and better connectivity between the five villages. Upgraded access to these green spaces will provide learning and healthy outdoor leisure opportunities. We aim to support community and local businesses to find the productive potential of some of these green spaces.

To retain and increase community facilities, create local employment opportunities, including community business development and encouraging local and regional tourism

We aim for Abram Ward to be an ambitious, innovative and prosperous neighbourhood, where current and new residents can access enhanced community facilities and find fulfilling and varied employment opportunities. We are keen to attract new residents, businesses and visitors into the area. We actively support the development of new local and community businesses, along with the provision of appropriate premises and work-places in our neighbourhood. We aim to encourage local and regional tourism, and ‘green’ business opportunities which will make the most of our landscapes and green spaces.

To provide affordable, energy efficient, high-quality homes for our communities of all ages. We aim for our neighbourhood to be socially inclusive and to provide homes for families, couples and single people of all ages and back grounds, these homes will include small and large properties: apartments, houses and bungalows. We also aim for homes in Abram Ward to have a mix of tenures, from social housing, affordable rented homes, affordable homes to buy as well as larger homes to rent or buy. It is essential that new homes are built to high-quality standards with environmental sustainability and energy efficiency at the forefront.

Are you someone or have you identified someone who might benefit from becoming involved with WLCC or any of our initiatives such as Made in Wigan?

There are various ways that you can get in touch to take things forward.

It may be that you want to make contact to first find out if there really is a ‘fit’.

You may want to speak on the phone, come and visit us on behalf of someone, or maybe you’d like to bring someone along for an initial chat.

Whichever route you prefer we can accommodate.

First things first though, share some brief details and we’ll be back in touch!
