Festival of Youth Voices to enable young people to shape the future of Ipswich

If we asked the young people of Ipswich to talk about their vision for the town, what would they say?

How might they describe their hopes for opportunities and their concerns over challenges? Given the chance, what would they say to the organisations that have the power to help?

Thanks to a partnership with CYM and Ipswich Social Mobility Alliance, it's all possible. Please getting involved. 


Asylum Seekers Day Centre

The Together For Ipswich Sanctuary Day Centre for Asylum Seekers in Ipswich opened at the end of April 2023.

Its purpose is to provide a safe, warm, respectful and friendly environment for our Asylum-seeking guests whilst also providing a wide range of activities and English conversation lessons as requested.

The Centre is based near the Town Centre and is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11-5pm until further notice.

It is run by an employed Centre Manager and a number of volunteers, mostly from TFI churches.

It has been organised primarily by St Mary le Tower Church on behalf of TFI and is supported by the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich, a local anonymous charity, the Church Urban Fund, the St Lawrence Parish Hall Trust, Ipswich Borough Council, the Pickwell Foundation, the Annie Tranmere Charitable Foundation, Suffolk Refugee Support and Selig.

If anyone would like to know more about volunteering or any aspect of the Day Centre please contact the Centre Manager on
