SWAP provide practical hands on support through a range of services, including 1:1 advocacy and case work, educational and support groups working across Wigan Borough.
Volunteers play a key role, helping to deliver group work, casework and other support.
SWAP recently moved into Penson Street Community Centre and this has allowed us to develop and deliver additional group work to help a larger number of asylum seekers settle into the Borough and contribute to community life.
SWAP now includes SWAP Leigh, meeting each Tuesday at Kingsleigh Community Centre, Leigh from 11:30 to 15:00
We also have close working relationships with a large number of specialist providers that we can signpost people to. Please note that SWAP does not give legal advice on immigration matters, and we are unable to help clients to fill in legal forms, but we can signpost people to agencies that provide this help.
