  • Contact NCS Manager Mick Whittle for more information by emailing

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!

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.

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.

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 different projects.

NCS Manager Mick Whittle said: “Over the summer groups all across the country will be doing their individual social action projects and the projects differ.

“Some will raise funds and awareness for charities close to their heart, others will support in small renovation projects, from painting to clearing up waste areas. It will be the young people who decide what they do and that way give them the power to believe in what they are doing.

“The charities and organisations that allow our young people to get involved with them will benefit in different ways depending on their needs.

“Overall they will give the young people a sense of belonging to their local community as they spend the week working with them.”

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.
