We work closely with New Gorbals Housing Association to develop Participatory Budgeting across the area. They secured funding from the Scottish Government Aspiring Communities Fund to employ a member of staff to support this work and contribute to our funding pot on a quarterly basis - £10,000 to date!
We received £34,950.00 from the Scottish Government Community Choices Fund in 2017 to help us embed Participatory Budgeting in the Gorbals.
This money has allowed you and other community members to fund more than 20 local projects since 2017.
We secured funding from Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership in 2018. This money will support health related ideas over 2018/19 and 2019/20 and provide even more opportunities for the community to decide what they want to happen in the Gorbals.
Funding from the Scottish Government and European Social Fund Aspiring Communities Fund allow us to employ a Community Budgeting Officer. This day-to-day support has helped us develop a unique model of Participatory Budgeting that continues to grow and evolve.
Urban Union has contributed £5,000 to our funding pot. Urban Union is a development company currently building new homes at Laurieston.
