Communities Leading Change
Communities Leading Change is a Participatory Budgeting initiative which allows residents to decide how to spend part of a public budget by voting on which projects they think would be most beneficial and make the biggest impact in their community.
Each year we run events where individuals and community groups will be invited to submit project ideas, the most voted for projects are then granted funding.
