Funding Requests 

Oyster Community Press CIC ‘Who Cares’ Project for Suffolk Family Carers

Oyster Community Press are aiming to deliver a project providing a series of printmaking workshops at Tower Street Print leading to an exhibition at DanceEast. This project aims to work with Suffolk Family Carers to offer respite, build confidence and tackle isolation for unpaid younger adult carers who are not served by other schemes. Younger adult carers have been identified as a group, as having fewer options for respite and wellbeing opportunities. The awarded £450 will enable the delivery of this ‘Who Cares’ Project.

Ipswich Jazz Festival 2019

The Ipswich Jazz Festival takes place each year at St Peter’s by the Waterfront Church in central Ipswich. Area Committee funding will allow for two shows within the programme to be absolutely free to attend and also to allow for 75 concession tickets to be given out for £1 per person for lower income families. The funding request was deferred to the next meeting.

Next Meeting

The next meeting in Central is to be held on Wednesday 5 September 2018, 7pm – Ipswich Community Church, Clarkson Street, IP1 2JP.
