We are looking for innovative and exciting ideas that support our strategic objectives of making Tower Hamlets a better place to live, work and play. This initiative is aimed at supporting local Voluntary and Community organisations, through crowdfunding, to make those ideas a reality. We will pledge up to £10,000 towards the crowdfunding of the best innovative projects – subject to eligibility.
As well as being a key funder for the local VCS, Tower Hamlets are keen for local VCS organisations to diversify their funding and we are keen to support them with this – this is also an action within the Council’s 2016-19 VCS Strategy Action Plan. We hope that our relationship with Spacehive will act as a basis for VCS organisations to increase the levels of income they can generate with the purpose of supporting local communities.
