WHERE WILL WE GET THE MONEY TO PAY FOR A NEW SKATEPARK?

The idea of raising the money for your skatepark may seem daunting, but there is money out there, in the form of grants such as the National Lottery for example.  Getting the money is not easy, but it is possible, from national & local grants, trusts, local businesses, grassroots fundraising and local donations. It has been done many times, and it can be done again - you must always remember this, and use this fact any time someone questions whether it is possbile.

 

Many other community groups have raised the money for a new skatepark for their community.

If they can do it, so can you!



Your council might tell you that they can provide a site, but no money. Don't worry, tell them how you will raise the money yourselves - and keep up your adovacy efforts. Once you’ve educated your council or local authority on the community benefits of a skatepark, and they see that there is a lot of support for it locally, they may consider making a financial contribution towards it.

For now, don’t concern yourself with getting the money together to pay for your new park - before that you need to focus on finding a suitable site, and gaining the permission from the landowner to build it there.
