Barnet Council have recently launched its own community crowdfunding website called Spacehive.

What is crowd funding?  For those of you who might not be aware, generally crowdfunding is a specific venture or project that raises money usually via a website.

Barnet Together is a new community crowdfunding initiative which gives people the opportunity to pitch their ideas, big and small for projects that could involve Barnet’s high streets, residential neighbourhoods, parks and open spaces.

If you’ve always had an idea that could benefit your whole community, this is your chance to attract funding of up to £5,000.

If you are new to the idea of crowdfunding and/or are interested in finding out how to run a successful campaign, Barnet Council are holding a crowdfunding workshop on 25 July at Hope Community Centre.

The event is open to all and free. You can sign up to attend the crowdfunding workshop here.

There are lots of other ways you can make a difference in your community, for example, you could organise a litter pick on your street. So why not do the barnettogether quiz?

It takes no longer than 2 minutes to do the barnettogether quiz – so give it a try there’s links to so many things happening right round the corner from you!
