Reaching People is a forward focusing membership organisation for the social sector. Our shared commitment is to create lasting change through working together to deliver improved and wider reaching projects and services. Collectively we address inequalities and support people who are the most disadvantaged in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. We believe that are stronger together, harnessing the unique skills, expertise, diversity and commitment of our members. Associate membership is for individuals and private companies who want to support our work but don’t fulfill our criteria for full membership.
If you are interested and would like to be part of our consortium, for a small monthly donation you will get a copy of our newsletter and be updated on our progress and developments. You and any organisation you are involved with will be better informed of opportunities that could impact on developments. We will also be able to promote your work through RP. Your business contribution will contribute to your corporate social responsibility and for individuals; we will also be able to benefit from tax gift aid.
Your associate membership will enable RP to offer enhanced opportunities to very small and new VCSE organisations that are setting up and share our ethos and values relating to partnership, collaboration and working together to meet the needs of more people.
As full VCSE membership is based on organisational income you are very welcome to consider contributing appropriately in relation to your income. If you would like to proceed with associate membership please complete the `Associate Membership form’ below and return.
