Funded through PB, young disabled people take on accessibility for all in Pollok

A group of young disabled people from Pollok who were successfully funded as part of the Glasgow PBTV events want to want to hear local views on how they can spend £10,000 to make community buildings & spaces in Greater Pollok more accessible for all.

Support by Glasgow Disability Alliance, the group applied for funds from Glasgow City Council’s participatory budgeting process at the Big Night In event in April 2019.

Held at the Silverburn Cineworld, the event saw young people vote on the projects important to them. The PB processes was organised by a citizen's panel of young people, with support from SWAMP, a local community development trust.

Pollok Access Fund is the result, with the their ambition to make Pollok more accessible for young disabled people and the wider community.

They survey asks people to prioritise what would be most helpful for them and share any ideas they might have.
