At Communities Together East Anglia, we are committed to reducing loneliness and social isolation across East Anglia – primarily in Suffolk.

We do this by working both at a county and regional level connecting and signposting support for individuals and organisations, and importantly, at a hyper-local level, working with and within communities to encourage connection, friendship, support and partnership.

Help us help you…

We can all work together to reduce loneliness and social isolation.  All of the support that we offer is based on empowering individuals to improve their own health and wellbeing, to encourage communities to work together sustainably, and to ensure that regardless of where you live, you know how to access the right support at the right time for you.

Community Transport

As a rural county, sometimes getting out and about in Suffolk can be a challenge. Our Community Transport service provides door to door transport solutions in areas where public transport routes are not available or do not meet the needs of the individual.

Suffolk Carers Matter

Suffolk Carers Matter is a family carer support service that is available to all family carers across the county. We provide a suite of projects and support to assist family carers in their daily caring role.

Later Life Communities

With over 170,000 people aged 65+ in Suffolk, Knowing where to turn for information, advice or support when circumstances change, can be daunting, and Later Life Community is here to help.

Who are we?

Originally set up in 1991 as Bury St Edmunds Voluntary Centre, BSEVC has been at the core of the Suffolk community for many years, with a focus on providing accessible transport solutions to people across the county.​

Expanding on this in the last few years, BSEVC now has a suite of three core services, all with community at heart.

How can you help?

We are always looking for volunteers, fundraisers, and partners to assist with our mission to support the communities in our local area.


Support Our Partners

We work with a wide range of partners, sponsors and agencies across the Suffolk region.
