Kent County Council’s (KCC) new digital funding programme, in partnership with Spacehive, seeks to help fund community-led coronavirus recovery projects across the county in order to become more vibrant, resilient and connected post-pandemic.
Alongside registering your organisation with the crowdfunding platform, Spacehive, where any member of the public can donate, Kent organisation’s are also invited to pitch their project ideas to KCC in the hope to be awarded up to £20,000 (or 50% of the crowdfunding target) in match-funding for their project.
To be eligible to apply, projects should contribute to the following:
- Supporting community action in Kent particularly activities that are focused on supporting people who are facing financial difficulties or who are isolated as a result of Covid.
- Supporting community assets and venues in Kent, that contribute to our local communities and local connections, improving wellbeing.
- Helping to maintain the volunteering offer/social action we have seen during the pandemic post Covid 19.
Projects must benefit Kent (KCC area) residents and priority will be only offered to Kent-led constituted organisations (e.g. registered charities, CICs, community or voluntary groups) whose projects:
- contribute to improving places, spaces or residents’ quality of lives; and
- demonstrate creativity / innovation.
Spacehive are also available to support and promote your campaign.
