PARTNER WITH US TO SET UP A COMMUNITY IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT

Power to Change is seeking to partner with organisations in 5 places in England, outside of London, to pilot the development of Community Improvement Districts (CIDs) between May 2022 and April 2023. CIDs bring together community-led organisations, businesses, local authorities, residents and other stakeholders in order to revitalise a town centre or high street.

We are seeking partners who:

  • Have a vision for their high street or town centre which gives more prominence to community-led and social sector organisations, particularly those that reinvest their revenues into continued local improvement.
  • Take an approach to town centre regeneration that focuses on a genuine partnership between all town centre stakeholders: private, public and community sectors.
  • Believe that more meaningful and widespread community involvement is a necessary part of reformulating the role of high streets and town centres.

Power to Change will support each partnership with:

  • up to 15 days’ capacity-building support
  • development funding of up to £20,000 per location, for selected partners.

The CID pilots will run for 1 year, ending April 30 2022.

To find out more see the accompanying proposal summary and register to join our webinar at 1pm on Tuesday 12 April.

The deadline for submitting a proposal is 27 April 2022
