Ipswich Community

You are here

Area Committees give you the chance to raise your views, share your opinion and contribute to positive changes in your neighbourhood. As a resident of Ipswich, this is your opportunity to say what you would like to see improved.

Ipswich Borough Council and its partners – Suffolk Police, Suffolk County Council and the Police & Crime Commissioner – are working together to respond to issues raised by the community in south-east Ipswich following the murder of teenager Tavis Spencer-Aitkens.
Find out how Area Committees work and use our interactive location map to find out which ward you live in, details of your local Councillors and the date of your next Area Committee meeting.
Groups working to benefit residents of Ipswich can apply for amounts up to £20,000 for the year, through either a Community Investment Grant or Community Project Grant.
The Suffolk Community Restart fund, funded through Suffolk County Council, is a grant fund totalling £300,000. Each borough and district council in Suffolk has been given £75,000 each to offer voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) groups a grant to help them resume their previous activities safely and/or to support them to transition to new ways of working.
The Seeds for Change Fund is available for individuals, groups or organisations who have great ideas that will make a real difference to young people’s lives across Ipswich.
Area Committees commission improvement works in local neighbourhoods to improve the life of residents and tackle issues in the area.
You can raise local issues at Area Committees and during most meetings there will be an open session for the public to ask questions.
