Crowdfund Wigan Borough

We're giving away £1,000 extra funding to ideas making a real difference in Wigan Borough.

Wigan Council is offering an exciting opportunity by match funding innovative projects, large or small, that help the people of Wigan borough and solve some of our biggest social problems.

This funding forms part of The Deal, an informal contract between the council and residents that includes a commitment to work together to make Wigan Borough a better place.

Check the funding criteria to see if your project could be eligible for up to £1,000 or 50% of your funding target. Any pledge made by Wigan Council will be released only if the full fundraising target has been reached.

The Deal is an informal agreement between the council and everyone who lives or works here to work together to create a better borough.
