The Gorbals Ideas Fund belongs to the community and is led by local volunteers, Community Advocates. The Gorbals community includes the local areas of Oatlands, Hutchesontown, Riverside and Laurieston - around 9000 people!
We want to bring more choice and control to the people who live in the Gorbals and make sure everyone who calls our community home can live happily, healthily and well whilst accessing the services they need and taking part in things they enjoy.
We do this through Participatory Budgeting - a way of working that puts decisions about funding into the hands of local people. You can read more about Participatory Budgeting here.
Our work is supported by our Communities Know Strategy.
