Youth social action is young people taking practical action to help others. To create positive social change that is of benefit to the wider community as well as themselves.

By identifying whether young people are engaging in social action, and how many are participating, the Ipswich Opportunity Area will be able to evaluate the effectiveness of current interventions in engaging young people and identify areas of need for social action programmes across Ipswich.

Please sign the petition calling on the government to “to urgently increase college funding to sustainable levels, including immediate parity with recently announced increases to schools funding”.

It has currently been signed by over 24,000 people. Once a petition has received 10,000 signature it is guaranteed a response by Government and if it can gain 100,000 signature it will be considered for discussion in Parliament.

So if you haven’t already done so please follow this link https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/229744 and sign up.

Better still ask your colleagues and students to sign as well. You can access an interactive map which shows you the level of support in your area.

Let’s hope we can reach that 100,000 target.

We realise that students will want to find the most cost effective way to park and if this includes parking in nearby residential streets please be alert to the following:

  • Check first if they are permit only and for any restrictions, otherwise you may risk a parking fine
  • Park in a way which helps residents from being able to park, access their driveway or home.
  • Be polite to nearby residents
  • Avoid congregating in a group in nearby residential streets. Instead use the College site and the square at the front of the College.

Thank you for your support.
