We provide services that enhance the health and wellbeing of those over 50 with particular emphasis on the African Caribbean heritage community. We operate in the city of Leicester and surrounding areas.
Our activities are sponsored by The Caribbean Collective (formerly the Leicester Jamaica Community Service Group, a community organisation registered as a charity in 1974.) We changed our name in April 2022 to reflect the more inclusive nature of our current organisation.
We have over 45 years of experience working with African Caribbean elders. Over that time we have developed expertise about our elders and we understand their needs, aspirations and the challenges they face every day. We also welcome people from all other ethnic groups and we are able to fulfil their diverse needs.
“I feel blessed to have made new friends and go to a place where I feel at home and looked after. The people here are amazing and I couldn’t be happier.”
“The environment is fantastic. The people are incredible and I always look forward to coming back!”
“There’s no better feeling in the world than being able to make a positive impact on the community.”
We are always looking for volunteers.
We have volunteering opportunities for drivers, care assistants, administrative assistants, activity facilitators and fund raisers.
