Recovering from the coronavirus pandemic is going to take some effort and determination, which means we need to rethink what and how we approach the support that is available to people across Leicester. There’ll be no returning to the old normal, though we don’t yet know what the new normal needs to be. I’m Rob Watson, and over the summer I’ve been chatting with people who work for charities and civic society organisations in Leicester, about how they are planning to Build Back Better, and what we need to do to be ready for the next set of community challenges. Over six programmes we’re hearing from people across Leicester who’ve been telling us what they think about the city, and in what way they think life in Leicester can be improved.
In this fourth episode, we’ll hear from Charlotte Robbie Turner, who’s an education support champion with Leicestershire Cares, who helps young people who’ve been in care to gain employment. We will also be hearing from Shim Gooch, who worked for Reaching People supporting community leadership training.
