Participatory budgeting allows the public to decide on the best way to distribute funds within their local community.
How it works
- A steering group of local people is set up. They decide on the funding criteria for their area.
- Local organisations are invited to apply for financial support for their own projects.
- Local people decide which projects get the money, and vote at a decision making event.
