Hammersmith & Fulham Council has set up the H&F Hive to help local groups and individuals raise funds for community projects. It’s part of crowdfunding platform, Spacehive. In addition to raising money from friends and neighbours, projects can make a pitch for a share of the £200,000 which H&F Council has made available to support great initiatives. The H&F Hive opens up opportunities to anyone in the borough who has an idea that could make a real difference to the local community.

Projects must fit into one of six categories:

  • Sport and play
  • Parks and gardens
  • Art and culture
  • Buildings
  • Food and farming
  • Streets and infrastructure.

If you have ideas for a community garden, an art project with local children, a community café in the disused hut in the local park, an outing for elderly residents, or bringing people from different cultures or age groups together through poetry or sport, take a look at the H&F Hive to see how you could make it happen.

If you want to talk through your idea first, contact Cat Priddey, Community Engagement Officer at H&F Council. Tel: 020 8753 1770, email: cat.priddey@lbf.gov.uk
