Community funding


We've partnered with crowdfunding experts to bring you our new crowdfunding programme.

How does it work?

We have £13,500 of funding to distribute to projects that make neighbourhoods great places to live. All you need to do is raise half of your target amount through a crowdfunding campaign, and we'll automatically up the rest. 


Why Crowdfunder?

By joining our Crowdfunder not only will eligible projects get funding, but also expert advice from experienced fundraising coaches and loads of promotion to help you reach the widest possible audience.

Working together with Crowdfunder, we are harnessing the power of crowdfunding to gather support for great new ideas that have the potential to make a massive difference.
