We hold free information sessions throughout the year, for the next date and to reserve a space see the Events tab above! Crawley is a great place to both live and do business but that doesn’t mean we can’t make it even better. The Crowdfund Crawley initiative provides a new and exciting hub for the residents of Crawley to develop and share creative and innovative projects that will benefit the local community. Whatever the idea, from reclaiming waste ground for a pocket park to a community art project, Crowdfund Crawley is a way for you to shape Crawley through crowdfunding. If you have an idea for a project that will benefit your community then create a crowdfunding project page and become part of Crowdfund Crawley. If your project can show that you have the backing of the community then Crawley Borough Council may also pledge up to £5,000 to your project. See the below tabs on the process for more information.

Pledge- Hypermobility Ehlers-Danlos Book
Pledge- Hypermobility Ehlers-Danlos Book joined Crowdfund Crawley3 weeks ago

We aim to buy the Hypermobility EDS book and distribute it to GP surgeries, hospitals, schools, Secondary and Primary, Playgroups in Crawley so staff and volunteers know how to access information. At the same time supply these books to libraries so people living with EDS and HSD or their family/carers/friends can access them. There are co-occurring conditions too and often children miss education, patients end up in A&E and end up costing the tax payer more money. People living with EDS/HSD can lose their employment, colleagues, friends and activities/hobbies. Patients are themselves are unaware of all the symptoms and disbelieved. Medical Practitioners are unaware of it but even after diagnosis EDS/HSD sufferers are discharged back from the consultant to the GP. We have trialled this and once they find out there is a group and a book it is a great help to know they are not alone both medical practitioner or school and the person living with EDS/HSD plus families/carers.

Langley Green Primary School Outdoor Gym
Langley Green Primary School Outdoor Gym joined Crowdfund Crawley3 weeks ago

We would really love to have an outdoor gym for the children. We recently introduced the Daily Mile which the children thoroughly enjoy taking part in every morning before school. We would be able to incorporate the use of the gym before school and after school as well as within PE lessons.

Outdoor Basketball Court
Outdoor Basketball Court joined Crowdfund Crawley3 weeks ago

Crawley Youth Centre has an outdoor court that is in need of major refurbishment for it to be able to be utilised by the local community and basketball clubs. The court needs a new surface playing area, new backboards and rings along with current court markings. It is in a really great location and is able to be locked at night to keep it from being vandalised. We would also like to put in a seating area spectators as in the summer holidays we are able to run competitions and offer the players somewhere to go where it is safe and secure.
