Area Committee funding

You are here

Ipswich is divided into five areas, each of which has its own Area Committee. Within these areas Councillors work with residents, businesses, and community groups to discuss how their budget can be spent to make improvements. Each Committee has an annual budget, (see below, last updated 12/04/2023).

Remaining 2023/24 Area Committee Budgets:

Central:          Available soon   

South West:   Available soon

North West:   Available soon

South East:    Available soon

North East:    Available soon

Who and what do we fund?

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

We fund projects led by VCSFE groups/organisations. These must address at least one of the priorities outlined in the relevant Area Action Plan and benefit a significant number of people from within this area.

 Area Committee grant funding will aim to:

  • Promote health and wellbeing.
  • Tackle disadvantage.
  • Support local solutions to meet local needs.
  • Promote community cohesion.
  • Develop sustainable and supportive communities.
  • Make Ipswich a cleaner, more attractive and sustainable place.
