Localities and communities

We want to empower local people to have more control and influence over what happens in their local area.

We help communities to identify their own priorities and get involved in the design and delivery of services. We also give them the support, advice and expertise to help them achieve their ambitions.

We work with our colleagues in the district and borough councils, police and health as well as in the voluntary and community sector to provide this support.

We work with both common interest communities and communities based in a certain area. 

Across Suffolk we have helped communities to:

  • take on the running of community centres, parks and playing fields
  • deliver services such as youth clubs and local transport services
