Community Voting Day 2018

What is the Community Voting Day?

At the Community Voting Days, you the residents of the Northumberland Park and Broadwater Farm  – will decide which projects receive funding to deliver activities, events and services in your area to directly benefit your community.

The Northumberland Community Voting Day took place on Saturday 9 June. For all the on-the-day action and pictures visit the dedicated Northumberland Park Community Voting Day web page.

Community Voting Days are great local events which place power into the hands of residents to choose which individual projects can receive funding of up to £5,000.

In a community version of ‘Dragon’s Den’ those projects which would like to receive funding will have a maximum of three minutes to present their project’s ideas to you and the ones you like best will receive the funding to aid your community.

This pot of money comes from Haringey Council, funded by money from the Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government (external link) Estate Regeneration Fund in 2017. Out of this the council created a Community Fund which aims to help improve the lives of Northumberland Park and Broadwater Farn residents.
