Opening times; Mon-Fri 10am-4pm

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.

Before and when individuals become participants on to the project we “unpack” them by listening and talking to them about their entire situation, using a holistic and person-centred approach.

We provide tailored support through specialist Community Coaches who consult and agree with individual goals, targets and achievements, following a personal ‘Roadmap’. For those seeking paid or voluntary work there are specialist ‘Stepping Stone’ partners who provide skills training with CVs, digital skills and job interviews. Where mental health and additional physical needs are identified a ‘Recovery Plan’ is also utilised.

The barriers addressed include:

  • Mental/Physical Health
  • Domestic Violence
  • Family Issues
  • Relationships
  • Benefits Issues

Personal barriers often are the main cause of exclusion, restricting or preventing access to services, community activities, support networks, family and friends, education, training and employment.

We are primary based in South Wigston but our Community Coach and Stepping Stone services will be available to participants we have dedicated Community Coaches throughout Leicester and Leicestershire covering Melton Mowbray, Market Harborough, New Parks, Beaumont Leys, Mowmacre Hill, Saffron Lane, Eyres Monsell and South Wigston.

Target groups include participants who are 16 NEET to 65, unemployed or economically inactive – not being in paid employment, available for or seeking work, students, disabled, full-time carers, in full-time parental leave or distant from the labour market and in need of support, skills or confidence.

Participants are able to refer themselves so do not need to wait to be referred by another professional or organisation.
