CAS - Helping to restart community groups

Community Action Suffolk have set up a new service to provide help to Community Groups restarting after the pandemic: 

My name is Bee Taylor and I work for Community Action Suffolk (CAS). You may have heard about our Suffolk Community Restart Project already, where CAS are supporting community and voluntary groups to get back on their feet after the pandemic – whether that’s village halls, community buildings, sports groups, parent and toddler groups or the local knit and natter group! To help get the message about the project out to the groups that need support, we have organized for a poster to be sent to parish clerks across the county. It would be fantastic if you would be able to display this on your local noticeboard so that those groups who may not have an online presence are still able to learn about and access the funding and support on offer.

If you would like any information about the other services we offer too, please don’t hesitate to ask – I would be happy to set up a time to chat or you would be welcome to give me a call on the number below.

 Many thanks for your support.

 Best wishes, 

Bethany Taylor
