Volunteer in the Community

Our community development work brings together people, organisations and communities to make things happen and create positive change. We support a diverse range of community groups across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland to develop their skills and capacity to help local people thrive.

We also run campaigns throughout the year to support local community groups, families and individuals.
