History of the Niebo Project

The need for this service was identified due to the number of East European nationals in the City of Leicester who were homeless, with other additional needs, and requiring assistance following the down turn in the economy and subsequent loss of work. 

LCPT submitted a proposal to the Big Lottery and we were successful in obtaining funding from their "reaching Communities" fund at the close of 2011, and employed a full time Eastern European Worker.

The name Niebo means 'sky' in the majority of Eastern European languages and it has been chosen through a consultation exercise with our service users.
