Welcome to Wigan Family Welfare
Wigan Churches’ Association for Family Welfare has been helping families in need for nearly 60 years. The organisation was established in 1958, at the time concentrating on supporting young people with pregnancy related issues.
Since then it has expanded over the years, identifying and meeting the needs of families and children. It exists now to provide a service through counselling, advocacy and community development as a free, independent and confidential service to the people of the Wigan Borough.change content
At Wigan Family Welfare we offer a variety of free-of-charge services for those who need it. We provide a range of advocacy and counselling services.
The Lean On Me project was established in July 2017. It is funded by Wigan Council (The Deal) with the aim to find alternatives to using already stretched services. This project consists of advocacy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and also counselling for veterans who have left the military in the last two years.
