Newly elected President Bhumika Parmar has selected three charities for her presidential year 2023/24: Help the Homeless, Menphys, Zinthiya’s Trust.
Help the Homeless
We as a charity and our supporters truly believe our services can change and transform multiple lives for the better and help achieve the relief of homelessness and rough sleeping within our city. Our work offers an insight to what the potential service users need from a service that is completely beneficial, our in-depth work with service users, statutory services and with other organisations highlight the areas with gaps and that the services we provide bridges those gaps and offers a platform of empowerment and into other existing services, encouraging eventual independence. We aim to work closely with other charities and organisations, to not duplicate or replicate but to complement.

Our mission is to deliver a quality service that values the views and enables the voice of disabled children, young people and their families in Leicestershire and Leicester. We aim to provide a range of holistic, impartial and empowering specialist services through our own resources and in partnership with the statutory authorities and other voluntary sector groups.
Within the framework of everything we do, we aim to identify unmet need and offer effective support, which is in step with current legislation and concepts of good practice.
We value diversity and believe that every child or young person, whatever their needs, has the equal right to take part fully in their community and to have the same choices, opportunities and experiences as other children.
