Movements are hubs of fundraising activity where project ideas are brought to life with the help of councils, companies and foundations.


Part of what makes London special is the jumble of unique, quirky, human places shaped by local communities. Places that are distinctive. Places you want to explore. Places that make you love London even more. This initiative by the Mayor is aimed at creating more places like this – by helping Londoners to crowdfund innovative project ideas on Spacehive. Projects that boost quality of life and the economy.


CrowdFundLeicester is all about connecting people, communities, businesses and resources to good ideas that will improve our City. This initiative is a great way to get people, including the City Mayor, to back your project idea and help make it a reality through crowdfunding.
