Kirklees Council’s Growing Great Places programme

Do you have an idea for a community project in your local place? A way to make your neighbourhood more sustainable, inclusive, or accessible? From community gardens and cycle hubs to pop-up markets and murals – we want to hear from you!

Through Kirklees Council’s Growing Great Places programme, pledges of up to £5,000 are available for local projects.

Please share this invitation with your network to help us to get the word out!  GrowingGreatPlaces

Kirklees Council have been inspired by the community response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis and seeing so many people coming together to help each other in these uncertain times.  The crisis has placed huge strain on our communities but also an opportunity to re-imagine the way we use shared space and build on people’s stronger sense of connectedness to do things differently…

Hear about funds from Kirklees Council available for your project
Receive advice on developing your project from the team and our partners at Locality
