High quality, high impact services for all
Bringing life-changing community support to Leigh
Higher Folds Community Centre was originally managed by Wigan Council, then looked after by a group of local residents in 1997. This local knowledge and passion turned Higher Folds into what we see today – a place for local people to meet, grow, and change their lives.
The best start to your child’s life
With education and a supportive social group, parents are empowered to make the best choices for their children.
Our parent groups, Tiny Tots and Baby Bump and Beyond, are held a few times a week. They include sensory play, story time, dance, and outdoor games, as well as healthy cooking classes and simple exercise.
Our early years nursery builds the foundations of your children’s education. Safe and secure with fully equipped indoor and outdoor learning areas, Higher Folds is run by fully-trained, experienced staff.
Babies, toddlers and preschool aged children have the freedom to learn and play with other children, develop their communication skills, and get ready for their first year at school.
Board of Trustees 2018
The Higher Folds Community Centre Board is democratically elected and drawn from the local community. We collaborate with fundraisers, volunteers, local residents, and members of Wigan Council.
