Wigan Athletic Community Trust is a registered charity that employs nearly 50 members of staff who work with over 11,000 people each year.

Working across four areas: Community Cohesion, Education, Football and Sport and Health, the Community Trust team is based at the Montrose Skills Hub on Montrose Avenue, near the DW Stadium.

In organising its community projects the Community Trust aims to:
  • Increase opportunities for young people and families to be involved with Wigan Athletic.
  • Raise the aspirations of young people through football and education.
  • Provide meaningful sports opportunities for young people to enhance their communities.
  • Improve the health and well-being of the Wigan Community through football activities.
The work of the Community Trust team is supported by members of the first team squad, who made over 100 appearances at community events during the 2015/16 season.
