Tell us the changes that you think will make the borough a better place. From allotments and street murals to festivals and community cafes – if you have an idea to improve where you live, create a crowdfunding project page and be part of the Doncaster Movement. Through the Doncaster Movement you'll have the opportunity to ask friends, family and neighbours to back your project with a pledge. If the community supports your project, you may also get a pledge of up to £5,000 from the council, helping your bright idea to become a bright new reality.
We are particularly interested in reducing the impact on health and social care services by encouraging people to access support in their community, for example projects may:
Provide support and advice to help prevent people feeling they’re in a crisis
Support health and wellbeing
Support people at the earliest stage when they need support
We want projects that help make people feel happy and valued, and the more people that feel that way the better. We don’t expect you to reach all our 300,000 residents, we just want you to make a start in your area. We want projects that benefit the borough and its people and are worth the
investment, not just in terms of money but in time and effort. If thinking about the idea puts a smile on your face, and if you think it will make a positive difference, then you’re probably onto something!
