Ipswich Borough Council has funding available for voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise (VCFSE) groups operating in the borough of Ipswich to adapt or expand their provision and services to support the local community during the cost-of-living crisis.

Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPO) were created by the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 to address anti-social behaviour (ASB) in local areas.

The Orders empower local authorities to address nuisances or problems that are detrimental to the local community’s quality of life by imposing conditions on the use of an area that apply to everyone, whether resident or visitor

The broad aim is to keep public spaces welcoming to law abiding people and communities and safe from ASB.

Our Safer Streets projects are committed to making your streets safer. Funding allows us to implement a range of initiatives and actions, but we all need to play our part in making our streets safer to support #IpswichAgainstViolence
