Helping Hands Community Trust is one of eight partners delivering services across Leicester and Leicestershire under The Building Better Opportunities (BBO Theme 9) program which is jointly funded by the National Lottery and the European Union Social Fund.
The Brighter Futures project is designed to promote and implement Holistic Social Inclusion where the needs and barriers of socially excluded individuals are identified and addressed, they are enabled to access local services, education, training or employment and life opportunities within their local community.
