About the various grants available to communities in Ipswich.
Community groups are able to apply for a maximum grant of £1,000 to support the running of diversionary activities for young people during August 2023. The closing date for applications is 5pm on 25 July.
The Make a Difference Fund (MAD Funding) is a smaller fund set aside from the main Area Committee budgets each year to enable ‘quick fixes’. Typically, it is used to purchase small items or for ‘one off' events.
Families in Need (FIND) Ipswich offers a lifeline to people in Ipswich and the surrounding areas who are experiencing poverty and despair – providing food and other household items for 30 years.
There is a range of support and advice for local communities across Ipswich to help you.
