Growing Great Places is our community crowdfunding programme to support citizens and organisations who have great ideas for making our local places even better. As part of this programme we’re running two free online community workshops, with our partners at Spacehive.
We’re also providing extra support to citizens and organisations, to help you get great ideas off the ground in our local places. Along with our workshops and tailored project support, there is a fund of £50,000 available. Successful projects can potentially receive a pledge of up to £5,000 from Kirklees Council to support their campaign.
Come to one of our free online workshops with Spacehive where you will have the chance to:
- Hear about funds from Kirklees Council available for your project
- Receive advice on developing your project from the team and our partners at Locality
- Join smaller break out rooms for interactive, specialised support for your project including Q&As with Spacehive project creators
- Access advice on planning and promoting your campaign
- Stay for an optional ‘Tea + Talk’ for virtual community networking
Growing Great Places is all about making sure that more people can have a stake in their local place. It’s part of our work to grow a stronger local democracy in Kirklees, from the ground up.
