Whether your project is big or small, this event is your chance to start making a real difference in your local area!

From temporary water slides to community allotments, Essex has a new way to support small scale local projects.

The Essex Crowd is a new crowdfunding initiative where you can share your community ideas and offer neighbours, local businesses and other interested parties the opportunity to pledge their support to make your idea a reality.

We want to support as many ideas as possible and can pledge up to £1,000 to back schemes that create connections and bring people together.

If you're interested in creating a project as part of the Essex Crowd then come along to to this workshop for all you need to start your crowdfunding campaign.

Join us for this interactive workshop and you'll:

  • learn how to define your project idea
  • get tips for presenting your project page clearly
  • start creating your campaign plan
  • discover how to identify potential backers
  • get advice on marketing and communicating your project
  • receive a free guide to running a successful campaign
