This money will help towards our core funding to enable us to be responsive to promoting community engagement when developments arise. We sort funds to enable Look! St Albans to increase awareness of community engagement in development, including maintaining an online presence and website, producing and printing promotional materials, and running meetings for Look! St Albans’ volunteer Representatives.
We rely on donations and grants, as we don’t have membership fees. Donations and grants of any size are vital and helps us in our work which includes, very importantly, spreading the word about our ethos, purpose and aims.
Funding from within the community also sends out a powerful message to developers/landowners that the community are very willing to work with them constructively should they want to take up that offer.
