About Voice Your Choice
Voice Your Choice is a £40,000 Participatory Budgeting Programme, offering small grants of up to £2,000 for ideas that support positive steps towards employment. Stage one of the process involves organisations submitting a project proposal, those that meet the criteria will move on to stage two, where the community will decide how public resources are allocated by attending a voting event in their locality.
About the launch
The launch event aims to provide information to community organisations on the process of submitting a project proposal to the Voice Your Choice fund. You can register for an application pack, receive guidance on the employability theme of the fund, find out more about Participatory Budgeting (PB) & what’s involved in the funding process, share ideas and hear about past project successes that have come from other PB grants in Edinburgh.
