Have you got an idea for a project to improve your area for the benefit of the local community or do you know someone that has? The Design for Communities Fund created by Design South East has pledged up to £10,000 to support innovative crowdfunding projects in the South-East and East of England, outside London, that improve access to and understanding of good design of the built environment – buildings, landscapes and public spaces.
Projects must meet at least one of the fund’s objectives:
A. Improve your local environment
B. Increase community capacity to plan/manage/change the built environment.
C. Develop community understanding/skills in good design.
If you have an idea for a project but are not sure whether it meets the criteria, check out the fund criteria, terms and conditions here.
Perhaps you’ve heard about ‘crowdfunding’ but you’re not really sure what it’s about and how it could work for you. Sign up to online workshops
Start crowdfunding your project on Crowdfunder by midnight 04th June 2018 and apply for Design for Communities extra funding.
