If you have a bright idea that could make a difference to your local community, or know of a great local project that involves Waterloo residents, you could apply to our Dream Scheme for funding.
Dream Scheme is our grant fund to support local projects that benefit our communities and neighbourhoods. It can help in a variety of ways – from providing better security lighting to running events to keep young people fit and active.
Any Waterloo resident or resident group can apply to the Dream Scheme, either directly or through a member of our staff. Your local Community Development Officer will put your bid forward, along with any supporting information, to the Local Board for your area.
Our Local Boards meet four times a year to consider and decide on grant bids. Your Community Development Officer will let you know their decision. If they approve your idea, you will receive the money or have the work done as soon as possible.
Recent projects that are benefiting from Dream Scheme funding include:
