The deadline to upload your project idea and pitch to CIF is Thursday 13 February 2020! 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. There is 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 £140,000 Community Initiative Fund (CIF) for projects running campaigns. This replaces the way WSCC has allocated its funding previously. What are you waiting for? Upload your project to showcase your idea, inspire others, create energy within your community, gather supporters and make it a reality!

Climbing Frame SSC Desmond Anderson

The Parents and Friends Association (PFA) is a fundraising charity and support organisation for the Special Support Centre (SSC) which is based at Desmond Anderson Primary Academy in Crawley West Sussex. The SSC is dedicated to the education and development of children with autism throughout the area. We would like to submit a request for donation related to the project of replacing the climbing frame. All the children in the SSC have processing disorder, so time outdoors to ‘burn off steam’ is vitally important to them. The current frame was funded initially in 2006. It has been used extremely intensively by the children over the years. It became dangerous due to rotten wood, it has literally worn out, it is spongy. Wooden play equipment usually lasts 10 years and our frame will be 14 years old this summer. We are considering closing the frame for safety reasons. The climbing frame is now in need of replacement, at a cost of about £4,500.

The Village Magazine is the 2019 overall winner of the National Parish Magazine Awards and has served the local community of nearly 8000 households from Emsworth to Chichester for 16 years. The magazine is distributed door to door and is packed with local information and contacts supported by local business advertising.As a community focused organisation we would like to respond to the tragic events that have happened on the roads in our area recently. Letters from our readers helped identify the risks and concerns due to our local roads getting busier. Consultation with local schools identified a need for high vis items tailored to the appropriate age groups which they are not able to fund from their school budgets. The Village Magazine would like to help by donating to local schools a high vis vest for each YR-2 pupil and reflector badges for Y3-6 pupils. We would work with schools and PCSO’s to encourage the pupils to view them as part of their uniform to wear to and from school.
