What we have been doing recently...

We took a group of young people from our Chill & Chat group to Leicester market to help out with the evening meal that Arif, the founder of Help The Homeless team, provides for the many homeless people and struggling families in Leicester. Our young people thought it was an insightful experience, they helped hand out food and were able to have a chat with some of the people who were accessing the service. A few of our participants come from countries where they’ve experienced tough times and struggles, they saw this as a way of saying thank you to the country that’s welcomed them with open arms. We also had a Curry and Chat workshop which involved a work tour and cooking workshop at Lilu in the city centre. One of our young people even secured two weeks of work experience there after attending the day.
