Funding and Grants

Crowdfund Worcestershire 

Created by Worcestershire County Council in partnership with crowdfunding platform Spacehive, Crowdfund Worcestershire is a new crowdfunding initiative that provides groups countywide with a platform to pitch their project ideas and raise funds to bring it to life. This programme will become a springboard for locally-led ideas to attract funding more easily, while enabling everyone who cares about their community to contribute - chipping in as little as £2 can help a project on its way to success.
