Connect your community with a local event

Funding is available to host street or community events to help people in your community get to know each other.
The Christchurch Methodist Mission has Red Cross grants available for communities in Christchurch, Selwyn, Waimakariri, Hurunui and Kaikoura to host community gatherings.
Funding ranges from $300 to $1,000 depending on whether the event is a street event or something to involve a whole village or community. To be eligible for funding, events need to promote community connectedness, be inclusive of everyone who wants to be involved, and be free. Funding is being allocated in several rounds – with 2017 closing dates of 31 March, 1 May and 1 September.
The Council recently allocated small grants to support around a dozen local communities to host their own ‘Meet Your Street’ events, and has also been visiting 20 neighbourhoods across Selwyn over summer as part of the ‘Meet Your Street’ project to encourage people to get to know their neighbours.
