The NW Ipswich BLT has set aside £5,000 to support the BLT Community Chest. This small grants pot is open to voluntary and community sector groups and organisations, Social Enterprises and Community Interest Companies which currently work in NW Ipswich, or who would like to start new activities or projects in the area, which bring a direct benefit to the people living here.

Grants of up to £500 are available and applications are not restricted by a deadline. Applications can be submitted at any time and the BLT Partnership will consider them within weeks of being submitted. We have a rolling programme of funding, so that groups and organisations don’t have to wait too long for their project to be considered. This allows us to give a quick decision and, where applications are granted, enables the groups to get on with their projects and ideas at the earliest opportunity.

By investing our support and empowering our young people to believe they have the control over their own lives, this will enable them to build confidence for future challenges and develop new skills, which will give them better prospects to achieve and be successful.

The BLT wants as many local groups and organisations as possible to be given the opportunity to make an application. One to one guidance and support is also available to help with completing your form, so please do give us a call if you need any assistance or have any questions.
