From our base at Torch House, Torch Way in Market Harborough, VASL acts as the area local voluntary sector hub and delivers a wide range of services directly to the community of Harborough and Leicestershire. Our aim is to support the local community in improving and enriching lives by providing services and volunteer facilitated activities.
We do this by:
Providing local community services such as community transport. Supporting over 4500 unpaid carers through our county wide Leicestershire Support For Carers Project.
Run Community Champions - a project supporting the over 60's to live a full and satisfying life.
We support VAL by getting local people involved with volunteering.
Working with local partnerships to represent the views of the voluntary and community sector and influence local priorities.
Supporting local communities to develop new initiatives and activity.
We also run Young Carers Activity Group - providing young people with the opportunity to take a break from their caring role and spend time with other young carers.
