Leicester's community work praised

  • Comment

Leicester has been highlighted as a positive example of how to get communities to work together.

The Government used the city’s efforts in community cohesion as part of their services as a benchmark for good practice in a book of guidance distributed to other councils.

A training programme for councillors, work on a diversity hub and efforts made in the city’s estates were pinpointed as areas which Leicester had performed particularly well in.

The Government also chose to highlight the work of Leicester City Council’s scrutiny task group, which last year looked at community cohesion and activities put in place across the city.

“I am very grateful to everyone who has been involved in this and those who have worked very hard to make it all happen,” said Leicester City Council’s cabinet member for community cohesion, Veejay Patel.

“To be nationally recognised for what we do, and to be put forward as a suggested role model for others is praise indeed.”
