Grant fund­ing

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Com­mu­ni­ties in Castlemilk, King’s Park, Croft­foot and To­ry­glen are be­ing urged to take part in pri­ori­tis­ing plans for their ar­eas.

Each of the city’s 21 area part­ner­ships have ac­cess of up to £ 10,000 in grant fund­ing from Glas­gow City Coun­cil and match fund­ing by Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment.

The coun­cil is look­ing for com­mu­ni­ties to par­tic­i­pate in a process known as com­mu­nity or par­tic­i­pa­tory bud­get­ing.

The de­ci­sions are made in re­la­tion to ge­o­graph­i­cal lo­ca­tion, lo­cal pri­or­i­ties, what pub­lic ser­vices and ac­tiv­i­ties al­ready ex­ist and what’s needed to sup­port peo­ple in the area, in the fu­ture.

Com­mu­nity and vol­un­tary or­gan­i­sa­tions will be in­vited to present their plan at a com­mu­nity bud­get­ing event to be held in their ward.

Fi­nal de­ci­sions on which com­mu­nity and vol­un­tary or­gan­i­sa­tions are awarded fund­ing will be made fol­low­ing a vote on the day of com­mu­nity bud­get­ing event, by the pub­lic.
