The process

Want to bring your passion project to life?

We have set up the Southwood Foundation to help you do just that.

Make your idea submission below – All applicants will first need to provide brief details by completing the form.  The information you provide here will be used as an initial screening exercise to confirm relevance and suitability.  Following assessment of the information that you provide below, if your idea is deemed to be relevant/suitable, the next step will be to complete a more detailed Project Briefing document.

If you are a civic or industry leader, researcher, student, city practitioner or anyone with curiosity and initiative, we have designed this with you in mind.
