The Deal for Communities Investment Fund (DFCIF) is an exciting opportunity for people to make a real difference and solve some of Wigan borough’s biggest social problems.

The funding forms part of The Deal, which enables residents to get involved in their community.

Since its launch in 2013, we’ve supported community groups and projects working towards improving outcomes for local residents with £10m invested by the end of 2018. This demonstrates how committed we are to supporting local communities.
