Community funding

We are currently running four community funding schemes: Crowdfunding, the Local Lottery, the Neighbourhood Fund (NCIL) and the Equality and Diversity Community Fund’.

Community projects that can raise up to 50% (up to a maximum of £10,000) of their overall fundraising target can be considered for Crowdfunding, whereby the council will match fund the amount that has been raised by public donations.

The Local Lottery is a weekly online lottery created to support local causes in Barking and Dagenham. Tickets are only £1 per week, with 60% going to local good causes and prizes of up to £25,000 for ticket winners.

The Equality and Diversity Community Fund gives local charities and community groups a greater role in delivering events related to the Barking and Dagenham Equality and Diversity Calendar, creating new and engaging projects that will benefit residents.
