Organisations from Newmarket and across West Suffolk have been working in partnership, to develop a community project encouraging prosperous and safe night time economies in West Suffolk.
Newmarket has a vibrant night time economy with visitors from across the region coming to enjoy the nightlife and racing. But as with many communities in the UK, issues can arise that could be helped through neutral and practical assistance.
Further to this primary role in the night time economy, the West Suffolk SOS Bus has been developed to be a valuable community resource. The Bus acts as a mobile platform from which to run youth outreach work, health care awareness and training, and other roles identified by organisations, groups and communities in West Suffolk.
The Bus has been specifically designed and refitted to work with optimum flexibility and versatility, and has adaptable seating, a range of IT equipment, and a fully equipped medical area.
