Gifts for carers

We’d like to show our appreciation for the generosity of local people during our current Coronavirus crisis. 

These are testing times for carers everywhere. Care work is never easy, and at the moment we are feeling the pressure just like everyone else, so it’s great to see our local communities showing their solidarity with care workers and giving us that little lift we all need from time to time.

We’d particularly like to thank Lindsey who has gifted us some beautiful handmade bears, and also arranged for Parcelforce where she works to deliver food hampers to local vulnerable people who are receiving food parcels in the community.

A special Thank You must also go out to Christine Smith and Laura Polak who have donated the wonderful cups to our carers.

Wigan Invited to 'Journey So Far' Evevning

Premier Care Wigan are proud to say that we have been invited to join 'The Big Night Out' sponsored by Wigan Ethical Homecare Partnership, Wigan Council and Ince Labour Club.

The invitation invites families, residents, carers, ethical providers and Wigan Council: Adult Social Care to 'The Big Night Out' where an evening has been arranged to give everyone who has been involved in the journey so far, an opportunity to get together and recognise the hard work and commitment that everyone has given to the process and enable positive working relationships to build and develop for the future.

An outdoor volunteering project is helping young people with special educational needs into employment. 

In Wigan, more than 40 young volunteers have found employment after regularly volunteering with the green spaces teams across the borough's parks, cemeteries and open spaces, learning new horticultural skills and improving their social skills, through a scheme between Wigan Council and Fir Tree Fishery CIC.

One of our Clients, Mr Walter Fearnley, recently reached his 100th birthday and had a party to celebrate. 

Two of our Carers who visit Walter, Shirley Aspinall on the left and Sandra Smith on the right had their photo taken with him, with his picture of the Queen. 

Happy Birthday Walter!
