Wigan Warriors Community Foundation delivers a wide range of projects to meet community, educational and health needs. By using the famous Wigan Warriors ethos and links to the players we have delivered some truly outstanding projects for a wide range of groups. Some examples of our recent projects are below:
Using the power of sport, Inspiring Futures will engage young people aged between 11 and 14 years who have been identified as being vulnerable & likely to engage in risky behaviours, Anti-Social Behaviour and/or crime in an innovative intervention programme. Working in partnership with the Rugby Football League & the Youth Endowment Fund, Wigan Warriors Community Foundation will deliver the project in local schools/communities to promote positive, aspirational messages to youngsters using person centred approaches.
Doorstep Sport Empowerment Plus
Working in partnership with Street Games, the Doorstep Empowerment Plus project aims to provide a vibrant and varied sporting offer to young people in disadvantaged communities and are designed to grow 14-25 year olds motivation and ability to adopt a sporting habit for life. The Doorstep Sport sessions are fun, informal sports clubs that operate at the right time, in the right place, for the right price and in the right style. Together, they provide an exciting and varied sports offer to impoverished young people, improving motivation and encouraging them to develop long-term sporting habits.
