Welcome to the Boulter Community Flat!
66 Boulter Crescent, Wigston, Leicester, LE18 3WY
The aim of the Boulter Community Flat is to offer a safe, supportive and welcoming place for residents to pop in. We work with local residents and young people, encouraging them to become involved in community projects and activities, helping to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour and working together to promote a sense of pride back into the area.
The Community Flat project has been funded since 2013 for 3 years by the National Lottery, Community Safety Partnership and Oadby & Wigston Borough Council. The Community Inclusion Officer, Jane Morris, works with residents from 3 neighbourhoods; Boulter Crescent, Elizabeth Court, Maromme Square, Burgess Street and Junction Road.
The community flat provides all local residents, tenants and young people with signposting advice and also direct access to services including Housing Officers, Voluntary Action Leicestershire, Prospects, Police, Adult Education, Acorn Training, Healthwatch and Surestart. We run several projects in the three areas, have resident groups and lots of activities that people of all ages can be involved in. We also offer advice relating to sexual health including a free condom service in a responsible and caring environment.
