The Peepul Centre is pleased to announce that our Research and Development project has been approved for funding by the Arts Council England. This work will allow us to further engage with the local community and local arts organisations and help build our theatrical arts whilst developing the local artists and their performances.
The Peepul Centre social enterprise based in Belgrave, Leicester, has been through a great deal of change during the Covid-19 pandemic, with social restrictions resulting in many of its facilities having to temporarily close.
We at Peepul Centre are excited announce the launch of Peepul Health, an online forum dedicated to health & Well-being. Filled with videos, workouts and talks on health issues by leading experts.
We are pleased to announce that the Peepul Centre is one of 100 charities to be awarded a £100,000 donation by Barclays.

Peepul Centre Free Meals Service for the Covid-Vulnerable People is supported by the Government’s DEFRA – Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs – grant to purchase foods to deliver nutrients meals to the vulnerable people in the Leicester Belgrave area for 8 weeks from 16 June 2020.
Our aim is to provide free meals to the local elderly, vulnerable, isolated, NHS staff & Key workers. Currently we are supplying up to 1000 meals per week.
We are a charitable organisation that has been involved with the local community since we were first established in the year 2000. Most of our work is with and for those that live in the areas surrounding our Centre. As a result, we have established a deep connection with people and value all those who use our Centre. Our organisation is completely self-funded as is this project, which is why we are asking for your help.
