Leicestershire Communities

Leicestershire Communities is a resource which provides a range of useful information to help local people to actively participate in their communities

Asset 1


Originally known as Leicestershire Forums before their rebrand in 2016 and supported by Leicestershire County Council, Leicestershire Communities asked us to develop a website that assists with their aim of improving the lives of local communities. They wanted to give an online platform for local communities to discuss important news and issues or apply for funding grants to run projects that would benefit their community. As part of their rebrand, we were asked to re-design both their logo and website to provide a fresh, modern feel and provide a greater focus on the different types of work they do.


A great example of how we treat our clients, we've been supporting Leicestershire Communities for a long time and through the years we've worked on additional related projects such as Oakleaves and Leicestershire Villages. We also provided them with a dedicated support ticketing system to help process any queries in the use of system as efficiently as possible.

Our long history with Leicestershire Communities meant that in the 2016 rebrand, we already had a good idea of the important details and so after an initial meeting, we were able to begin work on draft concepts for the logo and website design. We like to involve our clients as closely as possible and so we worked collaboratively with Leicestershire Communities to create a stunning new brand and website that everyone was thrilled with.


For this project we used the full capabilities of our Content Management System, rather than needing any additional developments, to deliver:

  • News and Events feeds
  • Questionnaires and contact forms
  • Restricted members area
  • Blog posts with option to public comments
