ABOUT THE COMMUNITY TRUST
Wigan Athletic Community Trust is a registered charity that employs nearly 50 members of staff who work with over 12,000 people each year.
Working across three key areas: Community Development, Schools and Training & Skills, the Community Trust works with Wigan Athletic Football Club to improve health, enhance life chances and to create stronger, safer communities.
In organising its community projects the Community Trust's objectives are to:
- Increase participation in sport across all levels of society - particularly those from under-represented groups.
- Encourage young people and their families to lead healthier and more active lifestyles.
- Improve the skills, aspirations and achievements of young people.
- Contribute towards increased community cohesion by improving the quality of life for young people and families.
