At The BrickWorks we are lucky enough to have experienced and time-served joiners to work alongside our volunteers and trainees.

Mentoring and training them, passing on a wealth of skills and knowledge in carpentry as a stepping stone to further learning or a job within the trade.

We are very blessed to have a lot of creative souls at the BrickWorks, who make unique artisan products from recycled wood, we also have a bespoke service if you have something specific in mind that you would like us to make.

But don’t take our word for it, come in and see our wonderful café Dottie’s to see what our talented team is capable of.

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.
