The Council is set to launch the Cheshire West Crowd, an exciting new crowdfunding programme.
Working in partnership with Spacehive, the UK’s leading civic crowdfunding platform, the Cheshire West Crowd will empower people to create projects that will make a positive difference in their community.
The Council will be allocating funding to the Cheshire West Crowd and supporting projects focusing on its priorities, with up to 75 per cent of the overall crowdfunding target for projects available from the Council to boost them.
Local organisations offering support to projects, whether it be funding or in kind, will also be invited to join the Cheshire West Crowd and help turbocharge the success of locally-led campaigns.
The Cheshire West Crowd will be formally launched at an online event from 6pm to 7pm on Monday 7 June. Everyone is encouraged to attend to learn more about how to take part in the programme, whether that’s creating your own local project or supporting community-led ideas with as little as £2.
