The project provides support tailored to each community, which will be based on engagement with its young people about their needs and interests. This could include providing more social opportunities with a youth café or youth club, supporting a healthier lifestyle with activity sessions or making services more accessible with carpools.The project will initially focus on the four most rural Community Partnership areas in East Suffolk, which are within:
Beccles, Bungay, Halesworth and villages
Carlton Colville, Kessingland and villages
Framlingham, Wickham Market and villages
Melton, Woodbridge and Deben Peninsula
