Health Matters

Opening up our facilities and expertise in a meaningful way to the people of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

We’re proud to be funded by the Edith Murphy Foundation to deliver the George Davies Centre Community Engagement Project, Health Matters. We think by bringing together students, clinicians, researchers, community support groups, patients groups and the public to promote discussions and debate, community engagement can tackle our society’s biggest health challenges.

Being good neighbours

Health Matters

Rooms in the George Davies Centre are available for meetings and events to local community groups. Thanks to the generosity of the Edith Murphy Foundation, we are able to offer a discount to community groups with a health remit.

Please note that rooms are not available on dates when the University is closed.

Running health campaigns

Our health campaigns aim to improve our community's overall wellbeing. We are currently focusing on Mental Health and Wellbeing, and Respiratory Health and Wellbeing. Anyone and everyone is welcome to come to our free events.
