Turning project ideas into reality with the help of Crowdfund North Somerset

A new funding opportunity for projects in North Somerset is being launched. ‘Crowdfund North Somerset’, North Somerset Council’s new crowdfunding platform, will be launched on Tuesday (16 January) at The Stable in Wadham Street, Weston-super-Mare.

Angela Hicks, CEO of North Somerset Enterprise Agency, is championing this new initiative and will be joining the event along with those who have successfully run crowdfunding campaigns with Spacehive.

If you have an innovative or interesting project idea, or just want to find out more about crowdfunding, you can reserve your place here The event runs from 5.30pm-7pm.

North Somerset Council is working with specialist crowdfunding provider Spacehive to bring forward this new funding opportunity.


Residents, local businesses and community groups will be able to post their ideas on the dedicated North Somerset platform created by Spacehive and invite members of the public, government and businesses to pledge funding towards a project they want to see become a reality.

As part of the ‘Crowdfund North Somerset’ campaign, residents and businesses will also be able to apply for up to £5,000 from the council to support their project. To qualify for a financial pledge the project must be able to link to key outcomes outlined in the council’s corporate and economic plans to ensure it will benefit the local economy.

The project launch event will be followed by a number of community workshops throughout the area over the coming months.

“The ‘Crowdfund North Somerset’ initiative provides a really exciting new opportunity for residents and businesses to put forward project ideas that they would like to see happen in their local area,” said Cllr Elfan Ap Rees, executive member for economic development. “We are hoping that some great projects will come forward that will make a difference in the community and help boost the local economy.”
