Life Links Attend The New Parks’ People Zone


Life Links recently attended The New Parks’ People zone event, a family day which aimed to inspire unity within the community.

The event was arranged by the Police and Crime Commissioner’s office and aimed to demonstrate the necessary life skills needed for communities to feel safe, secure and equipped to make the right choices for a healthier life. With the event taking place in the Western fire and rescue station, attendees witnessed a live demonstration of the fire and police service assisting a road traffic accident – a really interesting and informative demonstration that engaged all who watched.

Life Links, along with several other services had a stall at the event, providing a great opportunity for the people of New Parks to meet and learn more about the services that are available to them. In line with the main purpose of the event being to ‘Bring the community together’, Life Links asked attendees to answer the question: “What makes a good community?”

It was great to see so many people interacting with the activity and the team received many great suggestions. You can find all of their responses here! While there, staff from Life Links also had an opportunity to meet Lord Willy Bach, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, who was extremely complimentary and  enthusiastic about the service that Life Links provides and thanked all of the services at the event for providing helpful information to the people of New Parks.

Thanks once again to the Police and Crime Commissioner’s office for inviting us to the event, we had a great time!
