Leicestershire County Council's Communities Events

Celebrating Great Communities - December 2019

Leicestershire County Council hosted a Celebrating Great Communities showcase event at County Hall on 5th December 2019.

The event gave opportunities for delegates to:

  • Hear about different projects, activities and initiatives which are making a positive difference in Leicestershire
  • Hear from inspiring community champions, about how they have made an impact in local communities
  • Attend workshops around developing community buildings; social prescribing; being a resilient community; and how to apply for Lottery funding
  • Network and interact with other like-minded people who share common interests related to social action

The event also included the launch of a new approach to Tackling Loneliness in Leicestershire.

You can find more details about the event, including the speaker presentations, on the Celebrating Great Communities Page.

Communities Summit - November 2017

On the evening of Thursday 9th November 2017, we held our first Communities Summit event to celebrate the successes that Leicestershire's communities have achieved. We also used the event as an opportunity to inform attendees about our plans for the Leicestershire Communities Strategy, as well as discussing what we can all do together to help build Great Communities in Leicestershire.
