Future Ealing is Ealing Council’s transformation programme. Future Ealing Fund’s aim is to build on the council’s successful Transform Your Space scheme of recent years, which has helped local groups make all kinds of improvements to previously unloved or neglected corners of the borough.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought out the very best in our local community, but it has also had a big impact on people’s health, finances and wellbeing. Our Future Ealing Fund is about supporting local people with big ideas to improve the local area and to do something good in the community. It will provide match-funded, financial support to community-led ideas that help the recovery of local business, neighbourhoods and groups, and build more prosperous and vibrant local areas.
We would like to hear from new groups that may have come together since the start of the pandemic as well as those who are more established with their fresh ideas for a Future Ealing.
We want to support locally led proposals which:
· Bring people together to achieve their potential
· Improve public spaces
· Create community hubs and reanimate high streets
· Help reduce the borough’s carbon footprint
· Promote happiness, confidence and health
– £100,000 available
– Capped at £10,000
– 50% match-funding from non-council sources.
– Crowdfunding opportunity.
The deadline to get involved in this funding round is 28 April, but you will need to complete an expression of interest form first.
