Future Ealing is Ealing Council’s transformation programme. Its goal is to make the borough better and we want people who live and work in Ealing to get involved. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought out the very best in our local community, but it has also had a big impact on people’s health, finances and wellbeing. The Future Ealing crowdfunding programme is about supporting local people with big ideas to improve the local area and to do something good in the community. It will provide match-funded, financial support to community-led ideas that help the recovery of local business, neighbourhoods and groups, and build more prosperous and vibrant local areas. Be part of the transformation to make our borough better for everyone to enjoy. There’s £100,000 on offer, with a maximum of £10,000 (up to 50% of campaign target) for crowdfunding projects. This fund can be used for capital items of the project with the pledges from the public covering the non-capital elements.

Read Easy Ealing
Read Easy Ealing joined Future Ealing3 hrs ago

The 2011 Skills for Life survey of the working age population found that on the Adult Literacy Core Curriculum in Ealing more than 6% or 13,600 adults seriously struggle with reading. Most people who have difficulties with reading are too embarrassed to admit their difficulties and very few feel able to join an adult education class due to previous experiences of failure at school. Read Easy Ealing will offer a much more accessible, community-based and individualised approach to helping adults learn to read. Read Easy works by matching trained volunteer local reading coaches one-to-one with non or beginner Readers. They meet twice a week for 30 minutes in a public but private space and work through a phonics-based reading programme, “Turning Pages”, specifically designed for adults, it's suitable for people who have learning difficulties and disabilities, people for whom English is a second language and people who just didn’t learn to read at School.

Garden share loneliness & Food Secruity
Garden share loneliness & Food Secruity joined Future Ealing3 weeks ago

The initial project is to share and use front/back gardens, balconies and window sills of older persons and disabled, all to produce free healthy natural food. Once the produce is ready to harvest, we give a portion to the client and the rest to others in need. We aim to grow foods such as potatoes, onions, strawberries, blueberries, salads, herbs and even nuts, in great soil that has no pesticides, packed with vitamins. It's also a chance to reduce loneliness by regular visits. contact, communication and interpersonal relationships. This is a chance to find a way to provide sustainability within the city whilst providing friendship, a way to reduce loneliness. We aim in the future to feed at lessdt 20 percent of households of older persons and the disabled. Social and economic resilience made possible. We also want to find more land to reach more people for the availability of fresh food. We have 2 allotments and are seeking more land, even roof tops so we can look into growing

Ealing Skatepark - Beginners Area
Ealing Skatepark - Beginners Area joined Future Ealing1 month ago

Ealing Skatepark has been a huge success and attracts hundreds of people of all ages. In busy periods it is difficult for beginners and experienced users to share the space, so we intend to build a dedicated beginners area with small obstacles that can be enjoyed by younger and less experienced skateboarders, rollerbladers and BMXers. This area will also be useful in the delivery of beginners courses run on a free-of-charge basis by Ealing Skatepark Association.

GNP are helping to make the idea into a plan of action. The residents have formed a committee that GNP Federation supports and answers to. We will be having our first monthly market in December 2014. We aim to encourage local traders to get involved. There will be a youth programme running up to the first market. This will involve young people developing a business for their market stall and presenting it to a Dragon's Den style panel. There will be a pot of funding to cover start up costs which will be matched by the businesses involved. 30 stalls will be set up throughout the high street with traders, community groups and young people selling goods, food and sharing information or running fun activities. We also aim to have music and or some kind of entertainment.
