Active projects. The following are projects we are actively working on at present. To see more ideas of what could be done to help regenerate Dewsbury then check out the Ideas Bin.
A Local Lottery
We're organising a local lottery to raise funds to provide:
running costs for The Dewsbury Partnership. Just holding a public meeting in a community building costs money!
funds to sponsor and promote community events in Dewsbury and surrounding area. We want to be able to support people with bright ideas for rebuilding the pride of the people of Dewsbury in their town.
Having our own revenue coming in will free us from the tyranny of being dependent on grant funding and constantly having to chase the next grant in order to keep going.
Working with the business sector and Kirklees College digital students to set and achieve the objective that every local business, community centre and community group can be found easily online.
Working with local businesses to ensure that every business can sell online whether through their own website or via a Dewsbury ecommerce portal.
