2. PROJECT PAGE AND PITCH
Create your online project page which will match you to the Ealing Transform Your Space fund - you will ask you some additional questions about your project.
The project costs and necessary permissions will be checked by independent verifiers, Locality - involves checking quotes for all the major items and land owner permission for your project.
Run your crowdfunding campaign between May and July. Start by getting lots of small pledges from the community to show local support for your project. This will help unlock bigger pledges.
Ealing Council will review all project campaigns and successful projects can expect to receive a pledge in early June.
Ealing Hive works in partnership with Ealing Council. Created to represent each of the seven localities that make Ealing such a diverse place to live, work and visit. It is the ideal platform to promote your ideas and projects for a more improved Ealing, providing the support you need to make it happen.
Like all UK councils, less money is available from central government to fund local services and initiatives. This makes it an ideal time to be creative in how we improve our Borough and look to involve people, businesses and organisations in working together on local projects. Some of these projects will need to use crowd funding to turn them into reality.
Whether you’re from Hanwell, Ealing, Acton, Greenford, Southall, Northolt or Perivale, we want to promote your projects, no matter how big or small and ensure Ealing stays at the forefront of London’s evolution.
