The Cheshire West Crowd

16 August 2021

Created by Cheshire West and Chester Council in partnership with Spacehive. The Cheshire West Crowd empowers people to create projects that will make a positive difference in their community.

By running a crowdfunding campaign, projects can attract funds to enable ideas to be brought to life. This new platform offers businesses the opportunity to contribute to these local projects and to connect with their local communities alongside the council and other backers.

We understand that it has been a challenging time for many businesses. For those that can, we ask you to consider joining The Cheshire West Crowd which offers a creative and collaborative way to fuel Cheshire West and Chester’s recovery.

Pledging to projects could be a low-resource route to:
• deliver your corporate social responsibilities
• demonstrate Social Value impact
• deepen employee engagement and boost volunteering
• develop positive PR through campaign success stories.

Another option to consider is having your very own Supporter profile page. This requires a commitment to put forward a pot of funding per round - in return you are formally recognised at events, linked to our page and can support projects that meet your CSR objectives.

If you are interested in championing the Cheshire West Crowd initiative, we would be delighted to chat with you about the available funding options. Please get in touch by emailing: jane.makin@cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk
