Are you experiencing feelings of loneliness or isolation? Do you wish to go out to make friends in your local community but lack the confidence to do so?

Our Community Connectors are here to help. Our aim is to improve the quality of life for residents across Leicester, connecting people with local services, facilities and activities, and providing them with personalised support.

We can help point you towards helpful resources or introduce you to local groups and activities in your area so that you can get out and about and socialise, or connect with others online from the comfort of your home.

Who can refer

If you, or someone you know, thinks you may benefit from this support you can refer to the service and a Community Connector will get in touch to help you access the most appropriate services in the community, based on your needs.

Alternatively, you can be referred into our service by an organisation and a Community Connector will get in touch as soon as possible.
