Our Services

Wigan and Leigh Pensioners Link provide a wide range of services, targeted to helping older people by working with older people. Our superb Volunteers support our Service Coordinators in ensuring that our Clients get the best help and support.

Bringing you home safely


'HomeSafe' is one of our services available across the whole Wigan Borough.  Working in partnership with Wigan Council and the Wigan, Wrightington and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust, we offer companionship and reassurance for the patient when they are discharged from hospital.

Wigan & Leigh Pensioners Link offers a “Time Limited Contact Scheme”, which provides low - level support for a maximum of six visits for people aged 50 and over, who are experiencing changing times. 

Pensioners Link offers a Telephone Contact service. This service connects our Client with one of our Volunteers, to facilitate telephone contact on an agreed basis.

We provide a bag of essential food items for people over 50 following discharge from hospital. The bags are supplied free of charge.

Books & More is a continuation of the library's Home Delivery service that served our borough for many years.  The service involves the delivery and collection of library books to those who are unable to access their local library themselves and who would not normally see anyone on a regular basis.

A Helping Hand


Are you worried about getting your regular shopping? We also offer “A Helping Hand”, a shopping service that suits your needs. A team of volunteers will organise  your shopping and bring it to your door.

Wigan & Leigh Pensioners Link provides a FREE professional counselling service to anyone who is aged 50 and over and lives in the Wigan Borough.
