About West Sussex Crowd


Created by West Sussex County Council

Contact us communities@westsussex.gov.uk

West Sussex is full of people with great ideas who come together to make things happen to improve their communities. The West Sussex Crowd helps to connect those ideas that make a positive difference with supporters, to raise funds to make projects happen. Local communities know what they need and crowdfunding is a great way to harness the ideas, energy and resources to make things happen. As part of this initiative there will be a range support available for projects running campaigns, including workshops and webinars. West Sussex County Council (WSCC) is the driving force behind this initiative and has a £330,000 Community Initiative Fund (CIF) for projects running campaigns.This replaces the way WSCC has allocated its funding in previous years. Follow the movement to be notified when the fund is launched on 18th April What are you waiting for? Upload your project to showcase your ideas, inspire others, create energy within your community, gather supporters and make it a reality!

Our Journey

Multi-functional class for Pre-School
Multi-functional class for Pre-School joined West Sussex Crowd 3 days ago

We need your help to raise £7,000 for our Pre-School which is a charity run school for 2-4 year olds with no outside funding, and is an intrinsic part of the community as it provides a childcare setting for the surrounding areas. Children from the area thrive in this environment, and we wish to enhance their experience with this project. Our preschool has one purpose built room, with additional outdoor space. The challenge to us is to differentiate areas and activities that challenge both our very young children as well as our older children. We are currently looking for funding to enclose a rear storage area to provide a multifunctional space for the children of the pre-school. We anticipate using this space for children with special educational needs and disabilities who require an additional focus of support in their practical and sensory level to ensure we address the individual educational needs and small group activities to create an environment where they children flourish.

Horsham Children's Parade 2019 joined West Sussex Crowd 1 week ago

Horsham Children’s Parade is a multi-disciplinary ‘walking exhibition’ showcasing the creativity of Horsham District's children through a glorious spectacle of giant models, vibrant costumes and upbeat music paraded through Horsham’s town and park. It will enable children from 20 schools (approx.1000 participants), aged 7-11, who would not otherwise get the opportunity, to work with professional artists, learn about a diverse range of art and artists and showcase their own artwork as an official part of a major cultural event – the Horsham District Year of Culture 2019. The parade theme ‘Art & Artists’ has been chosen to reflect the Horsham District Year of Culture 2019. Designed to be an inclusive event, the parade will feature a diverse range of artists and participating schools include Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee, and those in isolated rural communities. There is no better time to show our public support for the next generation of creatives in our community.

Update It with new Laptops
Update It with new Laptops joined West Sussex Crowd 2 weeks ago

Worthing Sea Cadets and Royal Marine Cadets is a Registered Charity which provides local children and young people with the opportunity to learn new skills, build confidence and develop leadership skills. The unit has a number of old PCs which are slow and outdated, and which do not provide cadets with the best access to training material and course information. The unit is looking to be able to enhance the overall Cadet Experience by replacing 5 old PCs with new laptops which will be better suited to their needs, and enable them to progress their course work and training more efficiently
