WGN Services

Due to Coronavirus (Covid-19) we have had to change, adapt and reduce our services to follow government guidance, ensuring our service users, staff and volunteers safety.

We are currently able to offer the following services:

  1. Telephone befriending: you will be matched with a volunteer for daily/regular telephone calls.
  2. Weekly Activity Pack, this pack contains information and activities such as word searches, recipes and exercises and is dropped off safely at your door by our volunteer drivers
  3. Point of contact for information, advice and guidance for #Covid19 and also later life issues. Call us on 0161 905 3898.

Please use the appropriate referral form at the bottom of the page. Thank you.
