What is a Small Spark? A spark of an idea to make a difference in your local area. We are currently supporting Small Sparks ideas in Ashton-in-Makerfield.
With a small pot of money we want to help people to turn their ideas into ways that bring people together in their neighbourhood.
Many people have great ideas but a lack of resources or money gets in the way. Traditionally applying for a grant takes time and co-ordination and it can be uncertain whether you would be successful or not. This can discourage local people from trying.
We want to make this an easy process through Small Sparks. Small Sparks is a small grant of £250 available to local people with an idea that brings people together. The application process is easy and quick, and is little more than you would put on the back of an envelope.
Here are some other ideas to bring people together through Small Sparks:
We are starting in Ashton, Wigan to show how a small amount of money can spark a difference in the community.
