Spacehive

Spacehive is a civic crowdfunding platform for projects designed to make places better. They connect projects to the people, councils, and companies that are willing to fund them. Through the Spacehive platform, community groups, service providers or anyone with a great idea can build support for their project, ensure their plan is visible and gain local credibility and win funding.

Over 280 projects have successfully obtained funding through Spacehive to the tune of £6.3 million, with hundreds of projects currently live. From converting a disused coal line into an elevated park, to creating community-centred grocery stores, funding bids for community land trusts, and even installing a (temporary) waterslide through the middle of Bristol, Spacehive have helped to fund an intriguing and diverse array of place-based projects that respond to local needs and desires.
