Got a great idea for making your local place even better? Want to connect with others who can help make it happen and raise funds to get your idea off the ground?
We know that people in our local places are coming up with great ideas to help their community recover and thrive. You might have an idea that will help people’s health and wellbeing. You might want to reconnect people to grow friendships and tackle loneliness. You might be setting up new activities for young people. Growing Great Places can help you generate support from residents, businesses and Kirklees Council to make it happen.
We are now launching the Growing Great Places spring funding round for groups anywhere in Kirklees who are aiming to start a project this summer. Successful projects could receive a pledge of up to £5,000 from Kirklees Council.
Spacehive and Kirklees Council are running free drop-in sessions where you can get advice and support. We’ll be on hand to answer your questions and to share advice about running a successful crowdfunding campaign. Our online sessions include different breakout rooms where you can get the support that’s right for you. So whether you’re almost ready to get started with your project, or just working on some ideas, we can help.
The deadline to have your project ready to crowdfund is 21st April 2021. Come along to one of our drop-in sessions on 3rd, 17th and 31st of March to get all the support you need to get your project ready in time.
