We are excited to announce that we are now part of the successful Crowdfund Devon platform and are looking for ideas and projects that will benefit our local community to pledge funds towards.

We have £10,000 that we would like to use in supporting individuals, local groups and social enterprises to set up new ideas and projects that will improve the lives of our residents.

If you are not aware, the Crowdfund platform allows community groups and projects to easily set-up an online project where fundraising can be coordinated in one place. Crowdfunding is also a great way to make projects accessible to more people, trusts and corporate bodies that are looking to invest in community projects.

Crowdfund Torbay lets us use crowdfunding as a way to support the local community. Through this platform we can pledge funds towards the development and delivery of projects across Torbay that will benefit local residents, of any age and from any community where they:

  • Improve the mental health and wellbeing of people of any age
  • Reduce social isolation of people of any age
  • Increase physical activity levels and/or promote a healthy diet.
  • Help people in their recovery from substance misuse problems
  • Improve the lives of children and young people.
  • Support the integrated health and social care model for Torbay.
  • Help to reduce inequalities between different communities
  • Improve or enhance the local environment to make people feel safer
  • Increase cultural opportunities
  • Have a demonstrable benefit in addressing the Climate Change Emergency
  • Link to services that we as a council deliver and the outcomes that we are seeking to achieve

As you might except there are some terms and conditions about the types of projects we will pledge funds towards, to see these and to start setting up your Crowdfund campaign please visit the Crowdfund Torbay website.
