"Cheshire West and Chester Council launched an exciting new digital crowdfunding initiative on Monday 7 June in front of nearly 150 people online, providing an opportunity to bring community-led ideas to life so the borough can become more vibrant, resilient and connected.
Working in partnership with Spacehive, the UK's leading civic crowdfunding platform, the Cheshire West Crowd is an initiative that will give local residents with an idea to improve their community the chance to gain funding through the platform.
The Council has put aside several different funding pots.
£125,000 General Fund, with £100,000 subject to Cabinet approval
£50,000 Climate Change Fund
£29,000 Suicide Prevention Fund (Public Health)
£100,000 Containment Outbreak Management Fund (COVID Recovery)
Contributions from other people and organisations across Cheshire West and Chester will be encouraged as part of this initiative and the deadline to put forward your idea is Wednesday 15 September."
