VCSE support

The way we support the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector is changing.

Previously we were able to offer what is commonly recognised as 'infrastructure support' through a third party, but that arrangement has come to an end.

However, there is now much more free-to-access support information available to VCSE groups and organisations. You can find links to some of this support on this page.

If you represent a VSCE group or organisation which is based in – or primarily active in – Leicester, you can also complete our needs assessment form.

This will enable us to offer more tailored advice and support, as well as links to suitable resources. Alternatively, you can email us on

Our VCSE strategy 

You can find the Voluntary and Community Sector Engagement Strategy at the bottom of this page.

To get to this point, we have been speaking to people employed in, volunteering for, or receiving services from the VCSE sector over several months.

We hope that the strategy will further strengthen our relationships with local VCSE groups and organisations in Leicester.
