The votes are in... Community Choices fund report published
March 28, 2019
The Scottish Government has published its Community Choices 2017/18 report, detailing the last year of participatory budgeting activity from across Scotland.
The £1.5 million Community Choices fund saw 91 applications to run PB processes, with 17 public bodies and 17 community organisations receiving funds - and in two years there have been 97,000 voters sharing their views through PB.
The report contains learning and findings from the PB that’s been supported by the Community Choices fund, as well as a series of case studies on some of the PB processes, including Spirit of the Gorbals, Ullapool Community Trust and Summerhill Community Centre.
The report also includes a series of stats and findings which provide useful insights into how PB practice has been developing.
