We welcome new and innovative ways of addressing the Council’s priorities. Please see the Fund Factsheet for more information on the projects that are likely to be supported.
The deadline to pitch your project to the Sefton Crowd is the 30th March 2020. Projects for Round 3 of the Fund should help to deliver the priorities of the Council’s Core Purpose. For 2020, we are keen to hear about projects that align to the Sefton’s 2020 – Borough of Culture, and for Round 4 (September 2020) we encourage projects that have a particular focus on the Christmas/Festive season.
There is a £50,000 fund associated with #SeftonCrowd. Upload your project idea now for the chance to get a pledge of up to £5,000.
When creating your project on Spacehive, select the project categories which fit your project best. If you feel your project falls outside of these categories, there is support available with this if required.

Please see the Fund Factsheet for the Eligibility Criteria and the process.
Create your online project page which will match you to the Community Transition Fund (Crowdfund). Here Sefton Council will ask you some additional questions about your project. To take part, you must complete your project page, pitch to the Community Transition Fund (Crowdfund) fund and submit your project for verification by the 30th March 2020.
The project costs and necessary permissions will be checked by independent verifiers, Locality. This involves checking quotes for all the major items and if you have land owner permission for your project.
Once verified you can set your campaign dates. Run your crowdfunding campaign between April 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.
Sefton Council will review all project campaigns that pitched to the fund in May and successful projects can expect to receive a pledge towards their live campaign in June.
