Inspire Suffolk's latest Team programme students have been out in Ipswich town centre last week raising funds for their community project. As a group they have had a bake sale and been busking on the Cornhill, and near the Buttermarket, so that they can begin with the project they’ve agreed on as a group.

The Team programme encourages young people to join Inspire Suffolk for a special 12 week programme which is available to those in the NEET bracket i.e. not in education, training or employment. The programme is run in conjunction with the Princes Trust and is totally free of charge to those taking part. This latest Team have decided to make an anti-bullying video which also touches on depression and are raising money to turn their idea into a reality.

Heather Egan the Team Leader for Ipswich said of this latest community project. “This group really want to get started on the video but we encourage them to raise the funds first which they all bought into. The video will encourage people to intervene and not turn a blind eye to both of these key issues.”
