Charity open gardens in aid of Iceni
11.00am-5.00pm
Otley Hall
Please come and support the vital work that this local charity carries out. Iceni supports families in Ipswich and Suffolk to give all our children the opportunity to have a safe, healthy and happy start in life. We strongly believe that tackling the causes of addiction, poverty and other inequalities lies in effective targeted early intervention and addressing the unmet and inter-generational problems that are entrenched in deprived neighbourhoods in Suffolk. Our work is designed to help those who will raise the next generation of children, rather than applying sticking plasters to today’s problems. We do this by providing comprehensive support to parents and their families in targeted high-needs areas, including an emphasis on intervening early before problems become a crisis. All aspects of a family’s development is addressed through a host of services to parents, including addiction assistance, domestic abuse and improving parent child relationships.

£3 entrance fee which will be donated to Iceni
