Community Crowdfunding workshops help groups run local projects

Monday, 30 November, 2020

Community Crowdfunding is Redbridge Council's new crowdfunding programme with Spacehive.

Local community groups and organisations in Redbridge can create and fund projects which celebrate and improve their local areas.

The council will have some match-funding available to pledge towards local crowdfunding projects through the Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), as long as projects meet the selection criteria and there are sufficient available funds.

Local community groups can bid for projects that vary in pledge scale from under £1,000 for smaller projects, up to £20,000 for larger projects.

Members of the public can show their support for projects by “liking” them, and by pledging financial donations and/or volunteer time in project wishlists.

During the coronavirus crisis we have seen the amazing resilience, innovation and compassion of people within our community. As we emerge from the current crisis, it is hoped that this crowdfunding programme will become a positive springboard for a locally-led revival, where local groups come up with attractive project ideas to benefit the community, and generate financial and volunteer support from residents, businesses and the council.
