Wigan faces some of the biggest health challenges in the country and Wigan Athletic Community Trust is attempting to tackle some of these issues through its Wigan Fit Fans scheme.

The programme gives men and women the opportunity to take part in free weekly football and sports sessions and receive simple advice on how to lead a healthier lifestyle.

The Trust's Football 4 Forces programme provides football sessions for ex-servicemen, those still serving in the Armed Forces, reserves and cadets, as well as providing opportunities to earn coaching qualifications through the programme. 

For more information about the Trust's health programmes, please contact Men’s Health Co-Ordinator Chris Baxter on 01942 318090 or email
