{{ 'About' | translate }} Crowdfund Guildford

Created by Guildford Borough Council in partnership with Spacehive, Crowdfund Guildford gives community groups the opportunity to imagine, create and fund projects that matter to them. Guildford residents know best what is needed in their neighbourhoods and have the skills and creativity to shape the future of Guildford. Crowdfund Guildford provides springboard for locally-led ideas to attract funding more easily, while enabling everyone who cares about their community to contribute - chipping in as little as £2 to help bring projects to life. As community groups become project-creators through Crowdfund Guildford, projects can attract funding through their local community, Guildford Borough Council, local businesses, foundations and more.

The project will transform a vacant part of our landmark historic building into a vibrant Community & Wellbeing Centre that promotes mental health and community engagement. The ground floor, accessible space will be home to professional therapists and counsellors, both independent and NHS providers, as well as offering versatile meeting spaces for local community groups and public information providers to work from, gather and collaborate. The delivery of these services will blend seamlessly with the educational, cultural and charitable activities that we have been providing to the community of Guildford for over 130 years from our first and second floors - affordable courses, talks and events including art history lectures, tai chi classes, fascinating talks, open mic nights to name but a few! By repurposing an empty and neglected area of the building we are preserving the historic structure and long term sustainability, while positively impacting individuals from miles around.

The Old School Tongham Solar Optimiser

The project will build upon an existing solar power installation to make it more suited to the use of the Old School building, to eliminate carbon emissions and become carbon neutral. The Old School has two function rooms, a kitchen, toilets and an office. Our food bank shed is supplied with power from the Old School. The rooms are in use regularly by a wide cross section of the local community. The profile of power usage is therefore very irregular and at times large. We have plenty of generating capacity but insufficient storage for large loads like space heating. Ultimately the aim is to dispense with gas heating and use electric from our batteries or from a green supplier in the event the batteries are discharged. The project will serve as a model for a larger project on the church itself.
