To propose the set up of a S&ELCP Crowdfunding Scheme which will maximise funds raised for community-based initiatives
Civic Crowdfunding aims to give residents and community groups the ability to attract funding from their communities, local authority and local businesses in an increasingly challenging financial environment. Crowdfunding allows local groups to develop a community project via an online public platform and then seek additional financial support though online pledges.
This scheme would build on the success of the Designated Councillor Budgetsscheme and the Community Lottery Scheme, allowing projects to gain further contributions from a larger pool of people and businesses via match funding.
The aim of the scheme is to support local projects and make communities stronger, more connected and more empowered by supporting projects that matter to them. This scheme will enable the Partnership to support the priorities of the local communities.
