The #DMUlocal programme was created by De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) to make a significant contribution to the social and economic development of Leicester and bring positive change across the city.
Through #DMUlocal, some of the hardest-to-reach groups are engaged in projects that focus on the three core lenses of education, health and regeneration.
By working alongside Leicester City Council and other organisations, #DMUlocal offers a wide range of exciting projects that meet the needs of communities and have a transformative impact.
Through DMU Square Mile, students are harnessing their knowledge, creativity and enthusiasm to volunteer at events that create sustainable community support networks and improve the lives of thousands of people.
All this is possible thanks to DMU staff, who are using their expertise to create more and more projects.
The result is that around 2,500 students, more than 150 staff from DMU and countless community members are all working together to improve the city.
This has been such a success that now DMU is heading further afield and providing #DMUlocal projects to some of the poorest families in India.
