Belgrave Coffee Morning

On the first Thursday of the month a multi-agency coffee morning is held at the Belgrave Neighbourhood Centre, Leicester.

When I visited there was a real buzz in the room with a chance for local people to network and speak to many the agencies attending – as well as cake and samosas!

Agencies there were Victim First, Zinthiya Trust, Leicestershire Fire and Rescue, Living Without Abuse, Leicestershire Police, Peepul Enterprise, PA Housing, Local Pharmacy, Age UK, WEA Adult Learning, GamCare, Turning Point, Juniper Lodge, South Asian Health Action, P3 Charity, Midland Heart Housing.

There was the opportunity afterward for me to have a meeting with the local police to discuss in particular how to help victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse as well as other local policing challenges and achievements.
