People Zone

people zone community project

People Zones is an initiative that is designed to build on the positivity and skills of communities around Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland to make these areas safer for everyone.

Nobody knows communities like those who live in them, and by using their knowledge of what is needed in these areas, we can strive to work together to fill gaps in provisions and ensure everyone has access to the community assets they need.

To find out about the People Zone project in Thringstone and Whitwick via the People Zone website.
