There are 650 social enterprises in the Wigan Borough.

Social Enterprise UK is recognising these hotspots of social enterprise activity by awarding them with the Social Enterprise Place badge, celebrating their achievements and supporting them to grow.

Registered Social Enterprise Places will be supported to reach out to and involve local councils, businesses, charities, consumers and budding social entrepreneurs – bringing them together to grow their social enterprise communities.

The programme aims to promote, raise awareness, and build the markets for social enterprise at a local and national level.

What is it all about?

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!
