Leith Chooses 2021 is happening

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
    and/or
  • 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.
