Case study: People powered technology in Wigan

Posted: 6/5/2017 11:16:15 AM
With a population of 320,000, Wigan is the ninth-largest metropolitan authority in England and the second largest in Greater Manchester. The authority faces a number of challenges, including:
  • A continued financial challenge requiring the delivery of a further £60m worth of efficiencies by 2019
  • An increase in life expectancy that will result in increased demand for services from an ageing population
  • A higher level of deprivation compared to England as a whole
These challenges led the council to redesign the way it delivers services and embark upon a journey of reform. Central to its strategy is the ‘Deal for Communities’, an informal contract between the council and its residents to change behaviours in order to achieve a more positive future together.
