The event will be fully online in January 2021
Our friends and colleagues at the Partipatory Budgeting event £eith Chooses are taking applications until Friday 11th December with the theme for this year’s event being;
- Challenging food poverty in Leith
- Reducing isolation / ensuring connectedness
Participatory budgeting (PB) is a process of democratic deliberation and decision-making in which local people decide how to spend a public budget.
In the case of £eith Chooses, money from the City of Edinburgh Council’s Community Grants Fund has been made available for projects within the three Leith Community Council Wards: Leith Links Community Council, Leith Central Community Council and Leith Harbour and Newhaven. Good causes / community groups delivering projects in this area are encouraged to apply for funding from this money – an overall total of £46,102, with a limit of £5K per project.
