This year’s Participatory Budgeting (PB) funding process has just concluded:
We had a fantastic response again this year, despite us being in the middle of a Global Pandemic. Some great local projects will receive funding to deliver their ideas, which will all benefit their local community. Projects range from recycling bikes and clothing, to Easter and theatre community events, to breakfast clubs, drumming groups and musical extravaganzas.
Due to these extraordinary circumstances, it was agreed the that projects/ideas who were successfully short-listed by the 6 Locality Panels, secured funding, without the need for a public vote in this round.
This element of the process will be reviewed as we move forward with recovery.
The funds this year have been allocated from North Ayrshire Council, North Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership and the mental health and well-being recovery fund and will be subject to an evaluation of progress in 12 months of receiving funding.
