Pakistan Youth & Community Association (PYCA) was formed in 1993, as an association supporting the educational, social, cultural and recreational needs of the Pakistani and the other communities in Leicester. We were able to open Pakistan Centre in December 1997 with a support grant from Leicester City Council.

PYCA is situated at 58 Earl Howe Street, in the centre of Highfields in Leicester, an inner city area with a largely Asian community. The Centre provides leisure, advice and support services to the Pakistani people in Leicester and to the greater local community in Leicester and surrounding areas. Activates include youth activities, an elderly drop-in session (called Daikh Bhal), educational and language classes, women and girls activities, advice and support sessions, community conferences and seminars, social events, health advice and information and keep fit sessions. All these activities are offered in a space which is sympathetic to the needs of our community, and a sheltered environment that particularly young people and women can feel comfortable in.
