We are Compassion in Action

Founded in 2006 from humble roots in St Mary’s Church Hall, Lowton, Compassion in Action (CIA) continues to meet the needs of people in crisis – providing furniture, food and clothes, accommodation, skills training, education and advocacy.

In 2014, the charity was the proud recipient of The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, which is an MBE for volunteer groups.

Working with valued partners across the borough, CIA creates community solutions for the community – taking a holistic approach to service provision and giving hope to the most vulnerable in our society.

What We Do

Our Distribution Centre is where we prepare our furniture, food and clothing packages. All packages are referral-based and are tailored to meet the needs of the individual or family in need of support. Our 5* accredited food bank is the only food distribution service in the Wigan Borough to provide and deliver food hampers free of charge.

Compassion in Action focus on the needs of vulnerable individuals who may be feeling isolated and socially excluded. Our aim is to provide a place where these individuals can come together and join in with activities that will help them to build the skills and confidence to reintegrate back into the community.
