Volunteers at The Bridge Leicester

With the help of our incredible and dedicated volunteers, we are able to offer a frontline service at a minimal cost as well as provide opportunities for our volunteers to gain experience.


We are so proud of our volunteers and eternally grateful for the work they do, and the part each of them plays in supporting our services and guests.
