UnLtd Star People Award

Have a BIG idea that will change your local area for the better?

Are you from Ipswich? Do you live in the Castle Hill, Whitehouse or Whitton areas?


Do you live in the Catton Grove area of Norwich?

If you do, why not apply for a 'Try It' award and positively change your community...
We are proud to be working in conjunction with UnLtd to provide funding and support to people in Big Local areas in Ipswich & Norwich who have BIG IDEAS for their local communities.

What is the 'Try It' Star People award?
The ‘Try It’ Star People award will enable you to access funding of up to £500 to improve your local area. In addition, you will also receive personal support and expert advice on your journey to becoming a local entrepreneur and making a real difference in your community.

You’ll then be able to progress at your own pace and in some cases take on a larger project and apply for the ‘Do It’ award, which is up to £5,000 of funding.

A few idea examples:

A co-operative that offers local, disadvantaged families fresh bread
Support to families with autistic children
A local church that helps young people find employment 
Unwanted school uniforms up-cycled and sold at a low cost to local families

Those who apply for the funding must be able to show that they are passionate about improving their local area and gaining the relevant skills to do so, have a good idea for an innovative project, and live, work, volunteer or have an established business in one of the three selected areas in Ipswich.

Whatever the idea or project, as long as it makes a positive difference to the specified areas we want to hear about it.
