Support for High Streets


Crowdfunding can be a great way of raising funds to make a difference within your local community alongside programmes like the High Street Challenge and Cleaner, Greener Safer funds.

What is crowdfunding

Crowdfunding is a way of raising finance by asking a large number of people to contribute a small amount of money for a specific project. 

Why crowdfunding

Using crowdfunding to generate public support has become more mainstream. It allows you to raise awareness and support, get validation for your idea, unlock grants and other funds as well as create a band of advocates for your project.

Further information

Whilst crowdfunding can help raise funds for a project, it's a big commitment and time-consuming so needs to be built into project delivery plans. Details and guidance can be found here:
