Fund available for local community projects
The Council has put aside up to £120,000 to match funding that is raised from other sources.
Projects which get local people into employment, improve health and wellbeing, encourage civic pride, and build cohesion will be considered for matchfunding.
To access matchfunding you will need to complete a simple application process to show how your project meets our criteria.
Projects can receive up to 50% (up to a maximum of £10,000) of their overall fundraising target.
Want to learn how to crowdfund? Catch up on our recent series of online workshops for projects in Barking & Dagenham.
