It is with great sadness that we announce that Community Action Partnership Leicestershire will cease its management and development of Bassett Street Community Hub and Library in 2018

Community Action has managed Bassett Street since 2011, but within that time has been unable to ensure the building breaks even financially. While in previous years the charity has covered any deficit on the building through its reserves, the decision has been made that the charity can no longer afford to do this. This has been a deeply challenging and difficult decision for the board of trustees, and we have endeavoured at all times to look at alternative options, however the charity sector is dependant of funding to succeed, and we have been unable to secure the required funding to save Bassett Street long term, despite all the efforts and hard work of building staff and volunteers.

Community Action will hand the building back to Leicestershire County Council and work with the council over the next 6 months to ensure a smooth end to its services from Bassett Street.

Community Action Partnership will continue as charity providing community transport services from a new location.

Until we hand back the building it will be business as usual, however customers will see slow changes to services as we deal with assets owned by the charity and prepare the building for eventual handover, we aim to make this process as smooth as possible for our customers, and will inform customers of exact closure dates by January 2018.

We cannot at this point in time comment on the future of South Wigston Library, but will endeavour to keep customers informed of potential decisions on its future in partnership with Leicestershire County Council.
