From losing the roof over your head to struggling to pay the bills, poverty can affect anyone in the Wigan borough. 

The Brick exists to put an end to poverty and homelessness in Wigan and Leigh, and we rely on your support to exist. By choosing to support our #RebuildingLives campaign, you can help us to raise £75,000 and make sure no one in our community is left behind:

  • £5.00 provides a shower and breakfast for a homeless person twice a week
  • £8.00 provides a hot lunch to someone for 4 days in a week
  • £37.00 provides a day’s skills training to help someone back into employment
  • £38.00 provides a cold weather sleeping bag

Below, we show you the various ways you can help us to raise vital funds.

The Brick Project offers a huge range of services to people who are homeless, in poverty or facing debt crisis. This includes Crisis Intervention, Hospital to Home, Asset Coaching and Wigan’s largest Foodbank. As its name suggests, it provides a safe, solid building block for people in crisis to begin rebuilding their lives.

The Brick Shop is a charity shop selling donated goods, often to people on low incomes. The shop gives clothes free of charge to people referred by Wigan Council. The shop is one of the main hubs within its community.


The Brick Works offers training to increase the employment opportunities for people who are unemployed for a variety of reasons. This may include homelessness or recently housed people referred.

The Brick Re-Use has been set up to help educate people in the Wigan Borough about recycling and re-use. We also turn unwanted goods into lovingly restored furniture for families in need.
