Hi Everyone

Do you have a project that could be supported by our generous local businesses and contractors who are looking to give something back to the community?

This could be a space that needs renovating, a greenspace that needs clearing, digital advice to support with a new website, to name just a few examples.

If so, we would like to invite you to take part in the exciting next steps for the Community Noticeboard and join the onboarding process for our new platform – Match My Project.

Although the Noticeboard has served us well, we recognise the need for a platform that is easier to navigate and supports a more straightforward listing, matching and monitoring process for community groups and businesses and contractors. As such, we will be launching Match My Project in the coming months, which should meet all the requirements above and more 

As part of the launch process, we will be onboarding a select number of groups ahead of going live to the public. Those groups will be required to add a request to Match My Project, which we will then encourage businesses and contractors who are also taking part in the onboarding to match with.  

We will be hosting a group onboarding session virtually on Wednesday 10th July, 1.30-2.30pm. During the session you will be supported to create a Match My Project account and upload your ask.

If you have a project and would like to take part in this opportunity, please let us know by emailing communitiesteam@wigan.gov.uk  and we will email you the invite/link to the session.

Please note, places on the onboarding process are limited, and as such, we can’t guarantee you will be able to take part.

However, we will be in touch to support you when the platform goes live later in the year.
