Our crisis intervention team is the beating heart of The Brick Project, the team is made up of core staff and dedicated volunteers.

We offer the opportunity for people in distress to seek advice and support.

Our team is there for those vulnerable people; facing homelessness or suffering from emotional distress or financial hardship.

As our name suggests, we provide a safe, solid building block for people in crisis to begin to construct a new life and become valuable members of society.

“I came to England from New Zealand 12 years ago to find my birth Father – but that did not work out. I decided to stay and started to DJ and worked as an event organiser, got married and had children.

When we split up my mental health worsened and there were issues that I had not dealt with. Now the staff at The Brick have helped me get my life back on track and my wife and I are rebuilding our relationship. I have way to go – but I am getting there.”

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 Giving aims to put an end to poverty and homelessness in Wigan and Leigh. Our #BrickbyBrick campaign is working to raise £175,000 to purchase The Brick Works and make sure no one in our community is left behind.


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.
