What We Do


Here at Wigan and Leigh Pensioners Link, we work with the over 50s to help support the over 50s.  We can help with any of life's challenges, such as finance, friendships, disabilities, feelings, welbeing, learning, social activities and so on. We also help people to live a happy, sociable lives and reach their full potential.


We provide a Hub (on Charles Street in Leigh) with as much emphasis on community and peer support as it has on professional expertise. Our Hub has all the necessary information and advice for people to remain independent, with extra support if your circumstances change as a result of illness, bereavement or any other aspect of ageing.

A lot of our work takes place in the community too - our brilliant team of staff and volunteers travel across the whole Wigan and Leigh borough everyday to offer our services and support.

Please contact us on any matter relating to older people and carers. We have a small staff team and a dedicated team of volunteers who are here to help you. 

Our Aims:


Reduce Isolation

Maintain Independence and Wellbeing

Stimulate social interaction

Access information and services in the community

You are welcome to contact us or visit us at any time through the week.  You are also welcome to visit us on behalf of a friend, relative or neighbour who you feel could benefit from some extra help and support.
