Who We Are..........


ACE was founded in 1990 to provide community based education and training in the borough of Wigan and Leigh for people with learning disabilities. It is a voluntary organisation with charitable status which does not make a profit from any of its activities.


In 1991 the organisation became a company limited by guarantee and was managed by a Voluntary Management Group comprising of the four founding members and volunteers from a wide range of professional backgrounds.



What we aim to do.....


Our aims include providing a comprehensive learner centred service working to enable learners to make informed choices about their lives, by encouraging them to take an active part in their own community for their own and the community's benefit.





Many thanks to the fundraising efforts of former student Nikki and her Line-dancing friends who raised £100 and donated it to ACE.



February 2014 - ACE was awarded Certificate of Commitment by the Social Care Commitment Scheme. 


July 2013 - ACE was awarded the Think Local Act Personal Making it Real 'Kitemark'. We are working towards the commitments outlined in Making It Real - marking progress towards personalisation and community-based support.


June 2013 - ACE retained the Investors in People Award.
