A-Z Contact Directory

We've been working on and putting together a contacts directory for you, our students, that you might find helpful. So far, the database covers: 

  • Local MP's 
  • Leicester Council (includes bin days, waste collection etc)
  • Leicester Council Members 
  • Volunteer Opportunities
  • Furniture and other items collection 
  • Community Organisations 
  • Your Rights 

The idea behind this database/directory, is that it can be regularly reviewed and updated to be kept up to date to ensure that you can be signposted to the different services and groups across Leicester that you may need to contact according to your needs/interests. We hope you find this helpful :) 


We've listed some conatcts below, but for the most up to date info, download the spreadsheet here.
