What’s your big idea? 

We are looking for YOUR ideas on how to tackle the challenges that face our community to make Barnet an even better place to live, work and study.

Please note the deadline to submit Expressions of Interest for the Main Fund has now passed but we are still welcoming applications for the Micro Fund. Micro Fund projects can be on ANY THEME as long as they are still an innovative local solution to a local problem.

Barnet's Big Society Innovation Bank is a pot of money for Barnet's communities to develop new ways of addressing local issues. As power shifts from government to local communities, we believe this is a great opportunity to unleash the potential and creativity of Barnet’s residents and voluntary sector.

This year there is £225,000 in the Innovation Bank available to non-profit organisations, community groups and individuals who have innovative ideas and a drive to see social change in the borough.

For info on this year's themes and how to apply see this year's prospectus.

For extra guidance and application forms, please go to the downloads section on the right hand side of the page. We can't wait to hear from you!
