Community Cash Grants

Voluntary groups and charities in Ipswich are eligible to apply for a community cash grant of up to £20,000.

The application window for this year’s community cash grants will be open from Tuesday 28 August 2018 until noon on Tuesday 9 October 2018.

Visit Community Cash Grants 2018/19 for further information.   

Area Committee funding

Funding is available to make positive improvements within each of the five Area Committee areas. Area Committees commission improvement works in local neighbourhoods to improve the life of residents and tackle local issues in the area.

Funding is given in line with each area action plan, which sets the priorities for each area. Visit Area Committee funding for more information.

Please note: Individuals are not eligible to apply for Area Committee funding or Community Cash Grants. The Council similarly cannot support sponsorship or fundraising events or groups raising funds to redistribute to other causes.

North West Ipswich Big Local Trust

North West Ipswich Big Local Trust (NWIBLT) was established as part of the ‘Big Local’ Programme, set up by the Big Lottery Fund (BIG). BIG has awarded at least £1 million to the NW Ipswich area, which will be invested over ten years, between 2012-2022.

NWIBLT is led by a group of local residents who each live in the wards of Whitton, Whitehouse and Castle Hill and who are responsible for all decision making and allocation of funding associated with the project. The Trust is made up of 24 resident members and 16 advisory members who come from a range of statutory agencies, business and the voluntary and community sector.

Visit the North West Ipswich Big Local Trust website for further information.
