What We Do
The HQ is a one stop centre providing advice and guidance for Armed Forces Serving Personnel, Veterans and their families within Wigan Borough regarding Health and Well being, Welfare, Education, Housing, Employment and Social Inclusion.
Why not get involved in a host of diverse activity that supports health well-being, promotes personal development and connects you to your community.
We are always looking for volunteers to get involved. Opportunities exist to support the Hub, in supporting the Armed Forces Community in areas such as Health and Wellbeing, Fitness, Case-working, Catering and Administration. If you have the skills and time, we’d like to hear from you.
