Best Thing about working for Leicestershire Cares

3 Aug 2023

Our team met on Tuesday 1st August to reflect on the learning arising form our work over the past year. Some of the achievements were staggering ,we have supported over 11,000 young people in schools, over 300 young people seeking work and supported over 70 community groups and mobilised hundred of business volunteers to partner with community, young people , schools, and public sector. We have also enabled young people and community partners to feed into local and national policy and practice forums and debates. As we ended the day we asked the staff, to share what they felt was the best thing about working for Leicestershire Cares.
