Leicester & Leicestershire

Leicester & Leicestershire Citizens

Who are we?

Leicester & Leicestershire Citizens is a broad-based alliance of 20 local civil society groups from across our wonderful city and county, including schools, Leicester University, faith institutions, community groups and charities. We use the Community Organising method to listen to our communities, identify the issues that affect us, build campaigns and take action to win long-lasting, systemic change. Through our work, we develop our leaders and strengthen our institutions so we can be effective in local democracy.

Most of our leaders are young people and we are currently working to make our city a better place with regards to Anti-Racism and Refugee Welcome. We are also taking action to get local employers accredited as Real Living Wage Employers. We are campaigning nationally for Schools-Cased Counselling for every school in England. These are issues that have arisen out of our listening to each other and that, equipped with the tools of Community Organising, we are now taking action on. We invite you to join our alliance and make change in your local community and beyond.
