The Big Idea is an ambitious project that aims to tackle some of
the barriers people face here in our community.
Not everyone who lives in the Gorbals has the same experience. Some people are able
to take part in everything the area has to offer when it comes to events, activities, and other opportunities, but others find it difficult to get involved.
This is where we need your help. If you live in the Gorbals and are over 8 years old you can vote for the issue you think is most important for the community to overcome, and help us to make life more accessible for our friends and neighbours across the area.
The issue that receives the most votes will become a key priority for the Gorbals Ideas Fund during 2021. £10,000 will be dedicated to the project, and the Community Panel will invite local people, groups and organisations to work with us, share their experiences and ideas, and help us to deliver actions and activities in a way that begins to address the issue.

We know it will be difficult to choose one issue because they are all very important, but as a small team of mainly volunteers with limited funds we want to be able to work with the community and make a real difference. This won't be the last Big Idea vote, we plan to tackle the barriers and challenges people face over the coming months and years, so please choose the issue you think is most important right now.
If you are concerned about something that isn't on the list, please tell us about it here.
