Kirkley Residents’ Community Fund

The Kirkley Residents’ Community Fund provides opportunities for projects focused on community benefit to be started, developed and delivered in order to improve the wellbeing of local people and promote the development of a sustainable and supportive community. Applications can be made for up to £500.

The Local Conversations Programme is a neighbourhood-led initiative developed by People’s Health Trust. The Trust funds projects using money raised by Health Lottery East through The Health Lottery, to address health inequalities in Suffolk. The initiative empowers local people to lead the design, development and delivery of  actions  that help to make their neighbourhood an even better place to live.

The Kirkley People’s Forum is made up of resident volunteers focused on developing aspirations, priorities and projects for and on behalf of Kirkley and all residents of Kirkley can join.


Funding of upto £500 available

Residents can apply for funds up to £500 are available to help communities in Kirkley create, build and maintain positive relationships with each other and work to address the priorities of local people. This may be supporting a new activity or an existing one. We are interested in projects that encourage a shared feeling of pride, bring people together, create opportunities for community action and supporting harder to reach people in the community.

Projects must be proposed by people living in Kirkley for the benefit of people living in Kirkley. For example, perhaps you and your neighbours have been talking about doing something about improving the look of communal areas where you live, or you would like to start a community activity with like minded people.
