David Morrall Director, European at the Government Office for the
East of England, which manages the Objective 2 programme, said:
"The Framlingham centre will provide a much-needed training facility
for the care industry which is important locally and a youth room specifically designed to encourage young people to participate in learning and volunteering as pathways to employment.
"All five initiatives are fine examples of local community organisations driving forward projects for desperately needed facilities.
"This will be done by engaging with a range of local and regional partners working together to develop local economies and communities."
A total of £100m is available during the six-year life of the Objective 2
programme for local partnerships to create more jobs, attract inward
investment and help businesses in some of the poorest areas of the
East of England.
The other projects to benefit from the recent funding are: The Wells Harbour Project, Norfolk; The Ashcroft Community Expansion Project, Luton;
March Town Hall restoration (Phase Two), Cambridgeshire and
The Fisher Theatre Community Project, Bungay, Suffolk.
