The Democratic Society is helping councils and communities in Scotland to hold participatory budgeting processes online.
What is participatory budgeting?
Our work is part of a national programme to help more people take part in decisions about how public money is spent in their communities.
The support we can offer
If you’re part of a community organisation with Community Choices funding, or a council looking to do digital participatory budgeting, we can help with:
- Access to a digital PB tool – to host your participatory budgeting process. You will be able to invite people to propose ideas, discuss them together and vote on them, all online.
- Support from our digital engagement team in how to make the most out of digital PB and how to make it a natural part of how you do participation.
