Wigan Link is a Not For Profit Company Limited by Guarantee and a registered charity. The organisation has been operating for eighteen years and has been based at Hindley Business Centre since 2000 until moving to our new offices Dorbcrest House 20 Lowe Mill Lane Hindley on the 31st August 2013. Wigan Link is currently providing a service to twenty eight individuals, who have a learning disability, who live in their own homes. The organisation provides up to twenty-four hours support.
The services provided are now via a specially negotiated Direct Payment Agreement using a third party accounts manager to handle the payment on behalf of the individual. People can also access Wigan Link's support via an individual budget using the same third party accounts manager. All individuals receive a full assessment of need by Wigan Social Services Departments Care Managers, who complete a care plan and risk assessment on behalf of each individual. Wigan Link has a management group, made up of parents and individuals described as having disabilities. OUR LATEST CQC INSPECTION RESULT WAS OUTSTANDING.
