If you run a community business and have plans to expand, or to diversify your activities; or you are part of a local group which has a plan to set up a community business, Community Business Crowdmatch will support communities to develop, test or grow your community business. Use the power of the crowd to raise funding to cover key costs, as well as build your network of supporters. 

Whether it’s a community building (shop, pub or hub), green space, an energy project or sports or arts facility or service - if it’s owned and run by the community this fund is for you.

Power to Change will match fund up to 50% of your target, to a maximum of £6,000, as long as you can raise the rest through crowdfunding.

There’s plenty of expert support and advice available to get you started on your crowdfunding plans from Crowdfunder and our sector experts.
