Open Hands Trust is a Leicester based charity that has been supporting the emergency needs of the local community for the past 17 years. The charity’s aims are to see people in need in Leicester have their desperation lifted, dignity restored, perspective shifted, and hope grown through community care.

The charity supports some of the most vulnerable groups in Leicester, including those who are homeless, low-income families, asylum seekers, refugees, ex- offenders, people struggling with addiction, survivors of
domestic abuse, and pensioners struggling to make ends meet.

We support people with emergency practical help, skills training, and mentoring. Our services include the Food Store (emergency and affordable food provision), Pie Night (Tuesday evening hot meal provision), the Drop-In (emergency clothing, bedding, kitchen items), the Furniture Project (free and affordable furniture) and English Classes. We offer care, dignity and hope for the future to everyone we meet, walking with people on a journey towards independence from our support.
