We’ve set up the H&F Hive to help crowd-fund community projects in Hammersmith & Fulham.
The H&F Hive offers a new and creative way for community groups to make changes to community space, or organise new and exciting activities.
So, if you have a great idea for a community project, environmental improvement or event, get started by getting your project information together and uploading it on Spacehive.
Getting advice before you start
It’s easy to make a bid and there’s lots of help from our team.
If you have an idea and want to talk it through before you start creating a project page, contact the Spacehive support team on 020 3841 5989 or send them an email. They will be able to tell you if your project is eligible for the H&F Hive, and help you refine your idea.
H&F Hive successes
Lots of projects have successfully raised funds on the H&F Hive. Take a look at some of the great ideas that have become a reality thanks to the H&F Hive.
You can bid for funds from a number of sources through the H&F Hive, including H&F Council’s Fast Track grants (£50,000 a year available) or the Community Infrastructure Levy (£150,000 a year available). Details of eligibility and criteria are on the H&F Hive.
Extra help and support
For a comprehensive guide to help you put your project idea together, plan and promote your crowdfunding campaign, pitch for funds, and bring your project to life, download “The Ultimate Guide to Crowdfunding” (pdf 3.1MB).
Project creators in H&F will have access to workshops and free webinars that will show you how to run a successful crowdfunding campaign – from planning and pitching to PR and marketing.
Support is also available online or on the phone right from the moment you start uploading your project information all the way through to you reaching your fundraising target.
We’re want to support all community projects to tackle the climate and ecological emergency. Please have a look at our Spacehive guidance to help your project be more sustainable.
