Higher Folds Community Centre History

The Centre was originally managed by Wigan Council. It was leased to a group of local residents in 1997 who formed themselves into a Registered Charity and Limited Company.

Charity number 1076911 and Company number 03560600.
The Charity was established to provide benefit for the residents of Higher Folds in Leigh, without distinction of, sex, or of political, religious or other opinions, by associating the local authorities, voluntary organisations and the local inhabitants in the following manner to advance education for the public benefit to relieve sickness and preserve and protect good health of persons resident in the area of benefit: the advancement of education and training of young people and adults.

Our staff and volunteers all strive to ensure that our ethos of a welcoming centre for one and all is as strong today as it was when we started.
