We improve wellbeing, increase resilience, and tackle rural disadvantage in Leicestershire, Rutland and surrounding areas.


We understand the role that simple actions like offering a cup of coffee, starting a conversation, supporting local voluntary action, and maintaining accessible community spaces can play in increasing wellbeing, resilience, and overall quality of life in rural communities. This is why we place these simple actions at the heart of our work to CARE for people and organisations facing issues and disadvantage in the rural areas we cover.
