Welfare Support & Welfare Rights

We refer to a free Benefits Advice service with the Wigan Council Welfare Support & Welfare Rights Team, where people over the age of 50 can receive advice on benefits availability and help with form completion.  Appointments with this team can be face to face (usually at one of the borough's Life Centres) or at home if you are house bound. 


To contact the Welfare Support and Welfare Rights team, please call them directly on: 01942 705 221 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm).
