Insight into the Community Hub

A  lot is made of the Community Hub and the work it is doing with local residents. The Hub’s success wouldn’t be possible without the work of the 17 community groups who are contributing so much to their individual villages

Thank You

We wanted to take the opportunity to thank all of the incredible groups below who have worked with the hub over the last few weeks. These groups will soon receive funding from the Council to support them going forward.

  • Connect Blaby Together and Blaby Parish Council
  • Braunstone Town Council
  • Cosby Community Support
  • Countesthorpe Support and Volunteers Group
  • Countesthorpe Community Fund
  • Croft Good Neighbour Scheme
  • Helping the Vulnerable in LE19
  • Glenfield Support Group (Supported by Glenfield Parish Council)
  • Kirby Muxloe Free Church
  • Leicester Forest East Parish Council
  • Littlethorpe Community Association
  • Lubbesthorpe Alive
  • Sapcote Parish Council
  • Sharnford COVID-19 Support Group
  • Stoney Stanton Good Neighbours
  • Thurlaston Parish Council
  • Whetstone Good Neighbour Scheme

The Hub’s involvement with these groups includes providing food donations to foodbanks to help keep their supplies boosted. The community groups are contacted weekly to check what help they need, including donations and driver assistance.

We have been overwhelmed by the offers of help from residents. We are looking at how best we can use people to support residents across our district and will be in contact with volunteers as soon as possible.
