At the Brick Works we have renovated our existing café into The Hive, a modern and stylish café that delivers quality food.

We want The Hive to serve as a community hub; feeding members of the public with our Pat’s delicious food and helping to raise money for the vital work we do with the vulnerable. The Hive has been renovated by the hard work of our workshop mentors and the talented trainees. It’s now being led by our very own kitchen Mentor Pat.

The Hive is dedicated to serving you delicious food from our new menu, with a wide range of bistro classics to choose from and an extraordinary range of mouth-watering cakes. Why not stop by for your breakfast or lunch and sample our delicious food and get to know our warm and friendly staff and volunteers.

At The Brick, we believe that building skills for the people we work with, in any field that they are passionate about, that’s why The Hive not only function as a professional cafe but also as a training site for any individuals we’re supporting who are looking to learn catering and front of house skills. We teach cooking fundamentals, hygiene regulations and customer service to individuals who need our support.

We aim to have our cafe serve as a community hub welcoming all and helping to fight loneliness and isolation. Our cafe is available for members of the public to host a variety of events and clubs. If you’d like to book our cafe for your event; please contact us at or call on 07944 247 799 (9am-2pm)

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.
