Do you have project that needs funding?

Cheshire East Council has launched Cheshire East Crowd, a new crowdfunding initiative for Cheshire East.

Working with Spacehive, the UK’s leading civic crowdfunding platform, the Cheshire East Crowd will give residents, who have ideas to improve their community, the opportunity to gain funding via the crowdfunding platform.

The Cheshire East Crowd website has an introductory video, or you can watch the same video with subtitles on YouTube.

Cheshire East has allocated a total of £100,000 to the programme, with up to £10,000 (or 50 per cent of total project costs) available per idea to boost projects towards their funding target. The deadline to put ideas forward is Wednesday, 15 September 2021.
People with project ideas are also encouraged to register in advance for one of the two upcoming workshops below:

Wednesday 14 July at 12:00, and

Wednesday 28 July at 14:00.

Companies and organisations are also encouraged to offer support to project ideas, whether funding or in-kind, to boost the success of locally-led campaigns.
