goodPreviously called the Hopper, the Good Ideas Pot provides a funding stream to respond to new ideas, projects and entrepreneurial activity that is linked to our vision, themes and outcomes.

The pot funded the CAB advisory worker in the first plan, helping respond to the growing need for financial help and advice. Ideas and proposals come to the partnership to review and decide on, but our aim is to establish a separate panel to oversee this project funding and identify ideas from established groups.


Expected outcomes

In setting up the Good Ideas Pot, our aim is to:

  • Bring together groups and individuals.
  • Identify synergies with aspirations, ideas and existing groups and outcomes.
  • Develop and promote stronger collaboration.
  • Award grants that will help local groups achieve their aims and goals more successfully.
