PB is based on a simple concept "when the whole community has a say where money is spent, it leads to better decision making and to more people getting involved". Done well PB will result in:
1. A community with a better understanding of the range of groups that exist and activities going on in their neighbourhood or community, where everyone having a practical way to get involved.
3. Greater collaboration and partnership occurs, often meaning more resources for distribution come into an area or community, and when they do they are well spent.
2. Neighbourhood groups, community members and residents better able to express their needs and influence decisions made about a community
