Our Aspiring Leaders programme (formally known as Community Champions) is part of our Leading in Leicester and Leicestershire and Reaching People project. 
This programme is for those who are passionate about their cause and enjoy getting involved in helping individuals and local organisations change things for the better. A person who steps up without hesitation when the community needs help and who has the potential to flourish and have even greater impact with some support, guidance and training.
