We are a charity supporting disadvantaged people and communities across Leicestershire, Rutland and surrounding rural areas.
We understand how making new connections, creating warm and welcoming community spaces, and supporting local voluntary action can improve peoples health, wellbeing, resilience, and overall quality of life. This is why we place these simple actions at the heart of our work to CARE for people and communities facing issues and disadvantage in the rural areas we cover.
