Suffolk communities

Page last updated: 2019 - due to be refreshed in 2022.


Communities are often regarded as geographical: a group of people who live in the same place. However, communities can also be centred around a specific social, leisure, economic or health activity, need or interest. A community can be a group of people that share the same characteristics, attitudes or interests. Communities are generally social structures where personal values, cultural values, business goals, attitudes or a world view are shared by members to provide a sense of connection and belonging.

For the State of Suffolk report we have identified three key aspects of community in Suffolk. For more detail click on a section linked in the left column.
