The Ipswich Caribbean Association was founded in 1980 until 2010 when it closed its doors for the last time. The centre was a meeting place for all ages to meet and integrate altogether, since its closure there is nowhere for the community to meet. It was a place that had no racial borders and brought the community together. A place where other communities nationwide would come and integrate with the community of Ipswich. Since 2010 Ipswich Borough Council has not helped to locate premises as they promised for the Caribbean Community to unite and socialise. This has become a problem as there is a lack of communication and information for the community and the time has come now that Ipswich Borough Council needs to provide the community with a centre for social events, socialisation and a place to convene.
