We set up as a Community Interest Company (CIC) because we wanted Cullercoats Collective to be about investing in our community and not making money for ourselves. We also wanted to be able to apply for funding for our projects and initiatives, big or small and seek continuous improvement and investment in the community from local and national government. This allows us to seek grants as required from National programmes as well as pursue our own funding streams and receive donations from others.
Flexible Funding Streams
National, larger or wide-scale funding grants can allow us to achieve large projects or initiatives. We have set up various smaller flexible funding streams for those who are interested in supporting Cullercoats Collective to have our own ‘funding pot’ to support projects within Cullercoats, or be able to provide help or equipment faster.
Ways you can support Cullercoats Collective:
All profits we make from Cullercoats Collective Apparel go back into the funding pot. Unisex and good on all shapes and sizes. They are also in line with our environmental goals too!
Pick up some apparel, wear Cullercoats with pride, and know that you are supporting your community.
There are many ways to get involved.
We are actively seeking those who may wish to volunteer their time or skills towards promoting Cullercoats as a positive place to live, work and play. Whether that is for our Cullercoats Ambassador Programme or behind the scenes ensuring that Cullercoats Collective can continue to keep momentum.
Have a project or idea of your own?
We want to engage with proactive members of our community. Please get in touch using our Community Engagement Form and we will get in touch to see how we can work with you.
Cullercoats Collective works because it is supported by individuals, local business and grant funders. All the profit we make is invested back into the community to achieve our aims.
