Exploring Outdoor Social Ventures

The Exploring Outdoor Social Ventures programme is working with local community businesses, social enterprises and social entrepreneurs in the borough of Wigan, to support them to find out more about the value of setting up social businesses utilising green and blue spaces, such as parks, woodlands and canals for social purpose in the area.


Waymarking has collaborated with Shared Assets to develop this programme of workshops and study visits, which started in 2021 and culminates in 2022. Shared Assets takes a lead in delivering the programme, with Waymarking support.


This programme is commissioned by Empowering Places programme from Power to Change and its lead local partner is Wigan Leigh Community Charity, formerly known as Abram Ward Community Cooperative.
