Exeter City Futures are working to support our communities to develop innovative solutions which will help solve the problems of congestion and energy use within their local area.
As part of this Exeter City Futures has launched its #EveryonesExeter movement on Spacehive – a civic crowdfunding portal, where anyone can share their idea, build support from the community, connect with a like-minded crowd and pitch for funding.
We want to support local projects that get communities involved and make a real difference. Our Impact Fund offers up to £1000 for any individual project.
While we will give priority to projects that address our goals of reducing congestion and energy, we are always open to consider innovative ideas that will help Exeter become a healthier and more sustainable city, whatever they may be.
Interested in creating a car-free Sunday down your street? Think having community cycling storage on your road will help incentivise families to cycle more? Want to make your community centre more energy efficient?
Through informal engagement drop-ins we will seek to support you to develop your project idea. We can provide support from a dedicated member of our team to act as your point of contact and help you launch and market your project. We can also link you with other partners who may be able to offer support with advice and resources and we can talk to you about cash funding.
If you have a project idea you can approach us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, or download our Everyone’s Exeter Crowdfunding Toolkit below – our guide to creating a successful crowdfunding campaign.
