New funding round open – Spring 2021


Barnet Council have been inspired by the community response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, with so many people pulling together to help each other in these uncertain times.

Crowdfunding offers a way to raise funds rapidly by connecting people with local causes. Anyone can back a campaign with as little as £2, and can do so safely online. Spacehive will share guidance and tips on how to crowdfund safely and successfully during this period.

If you have a project idea that enables people to take a more active role in supporting their local area, and develops resilience within Barnet’s communities, Crowdfund Barnet offers a route to mobilise the funding you need to make it happen.

Barnet Council welcomes people to come forward with project ideas to improve your local area and build community spirit.

In order to support organisations during this difficult time some changes have been made to how the Crowdfund Barnet programme operates, enabling groups to raise funds rapidly.

The deadline to put forward your own idea is the 21 April. You can get started by visiting Spacehive’s website and creating your own project page.

Spacehive will also lead a programme of events for anyone who is interested in learning a little bit more or might want to test or discuss ideas that they would like to put forward first.

Free online events are taking place on:

Thursday 4 March 4-5pm:

So far, over 1600 residents, businesses and other organisations, have come together alongside the council to get behind 20 ideas, raising half a million pounds. From launching an urban farm teaching children about food and the environment, to creating a tranquil garden for nurses and doctors, Crowdfund Barnet is helping people bring their ideas to life.
