Does your charity need support this summer? Would you like help raising awareness about your organisation and the work it does? Wigan Athletic Community Trust’s NCS Social Action Project could just be the thing you need!

The Community Trust are running the NCS programme this July and August, and as part of this participants aged between 15-17 will complete a Social Action Project where they give back to their local communities by supporting various charitable schemes and organisations.

Latics’ NCS programme will work with more than 150 young people across West Lancashire during the summer to give them the opportunity to gain invaluable work and life skills, while helping to improve their confidence, leadership and teamwork skills.

Teams of 15 young people will work in their local communities as part of NCS and they are looking for charities, organisations and community projects across Wigan and West Lancashire who need support with projects, such as community clean-ups, painting and decorating tasks and basic gardening to name just a few activities.

The Social Action Project forms part of their four-week NCS journey and allows them to give something back to their communities before graduating from the programme at a special ceremony at the DW Stadium to highlight their commitment and achievements to the project.

Please email NCS manager Mick Whittle on or call 01942 318090 for further information about the Social Action Project and the NCS programme.
