Your Fund Surrey for community projects
What would you do with £100 million in Surrey?
What does your local community need? A new community centre? A local swimming pool? Collaborative work space? New football pitches? A community food growing space? A space to train and learn?
Step 1 - Share your idea
Speak to your neighbours and community groups in your area about how you can deliver exciting, inspiring and 'place-changing' projects together.
Ideas can be plotted on the interactive Commonplace map below, with people able to comment, make further suggestions or simply give project ideas a thumbs up. See further information through the sections on this webpage.
Step 2 - Submit your idea
The next step will be to submit your ideas in the Idea’s Submission portal. Please refer to this Ideas Submission Help and Guidance document (PDF) which will help you get prepared for submitting your idea.
The first time you access the portal, you will need to create a Surrey account login using your email and phone number.
Projects that meet the criteria and prove that they will deliver a positive benefit for local people will be taken through an application process and the first funding will be administered in Summer 2021.
Your Fund Surrey can be accessed for:
- Capital, one-off costs - the Fund cannot pay for ongoing running and maintenance costs
- Projects that fit with the aims of Surrey's Community Vision
- Projects that have the support of your local community
