Suffolk Inclusive Growth Investment Fund

Economic recovery investment from Leaders secures a lasting legacy for Suffolk

A new report from Suffolk Growth has outlined the significant impact of the Suffolk Inclusive Growth Investment Fund (SIGIF) in the past 2 years acting as a catalyst for over £8m investment in local projects.

The Suffolk Inclusive Growth Investment Fund (SIGIF), created through allocations from Suffolk Public Sector Leaders and NALEP, has invested in 19 projects across Suffolk since its inception in December 2020.

So far SIGIF investment of £1.99m has levered in a total of £8.1m – essentially for every £1 of SIGIF investment a further £4 of matched investment has been secured.

10 of the 19 current SIGIF projects are still in progress with 2 further awards being finalised.

Suffolk Growth Partnership works with each project team to support implementation, evaluate progress and make connections across wider Suffolk programmes.
