Event description

Description

Growing Great Places is a new community crowdfunding initiative which is all about bringing people and places together.

Our towns, villages and communities are the strength of Kirklees. You might have a little idea that can have a big impact by bringing a place together. Or you might need some help growing support for an ambitious project that’s just getting started.

We should all have a stake in the places where we live, work or visit. So we’re celebrating our places by encouraging more people to come forward with great ideas.

Kirklees Council have partnered with crowdfunding platform Spacehive on this exciting new initiative. As part of this programme, we'll be providing extra support to residents and groups with ideas. There will be a fund of £50,000 available with projects potentially getting pledges of up to £5,000 to support their campaign, pluc workshops to help you pitch your idea.

Join Kirklees Council and Spacehive, for our launch event to:

  • Learn about the program and how you can get involved
  • Hear about the funding available and the process to apply
  • Meet successful project creators and get advice on how to bring your ideas to life
  • Get insight into what you can expect from running a crowdfunding campaign and delivering a local project

Whether this is your first time creating a project, you're a seasoned community organiser, you work with communities who could get involved or you simply want to play a part in improving local places in Kirklees this event will tell you everything you need to know to join in.
