||Participatory City Foundation is delighted to announce confirmation of additional support for the Every One Every Day project in Barking and Dagenham from the City Bridge Trust and from Bloomberg Philanthropies, coming to a total of £1.t1m over three years.
This brings the total funding raised for the project and the borough to £7.39 million, of which £2.6 million has been confirmed in the past year.
This support guarantees that the project can continue to develop its aim to build and test a large scale participation platform in Barking and Dagenham, bringing new collaboration opportunities to local residents.
Andrea Coleman of Bloomberg Philanthropies said “We know that today’s cities face significant challenges, but they are also driving powerful solutions. We’re proud to support this ground-breaking work to help residents come together to transform their community, and we look forward to sharing lessons from Every One Every Day with cities around the world.”
The funding enables the project to establish the key elements of the Cities Programme, a structured curriculum of learning for other places wishing to build their own local participation initiatives. To find out more please see our blogpost.
