Who We Are
A local, user-led charity, dedicated to creating a society where disabled people feel valued, included and have real choice.
Our organisation began in 2000, as an advocacy provider for disabled people and their families across the Wigan Borough, however, with the support of our volunteers and employees, we now offer a wide range of services all committed to reaching our goal of a truly inclusive society.
The services we provide include, behaviour support, community connecting, circles of support, information advice and guidance, travel training and support planning. Our particular area of expertise is effecting positive change in the lives of children, young people and adults who have complex needs.
Our staff and volunteers are all dedicated and committed, with a wealth of relevant experience and skills. As a user-led organisation, many of our staff and volunteers have first-hand experience of the issues, challenges and dilemmas faced by beneficiaries, enabling them to be empathetic and knowledgeable.
