Your Voice Your Choice 2 is the latest participatory budgeting project launched by the Musselburgh Area Partnership

Participatory budgeting is all about the community putting forward projects and letting the community decide on which projects should be funded in the community.

These projects should all be about making a difference to people’s lives.

The “Your Voice, Your Choice 2” programme is looking for projects which will target reducing poverty and inequalities in the community.

The programme is being funded with £20,000 from the Musselburgh Area Partnership and £50,000 which we have successfully bid for from this years Scottish Community Choices Fund of £750,000 for the whole of Scotland. This successful bid was one of 94 bids amounting to over £4 million pounds for this fund!

What types of ideas, or projects, can be submitted?

Any type of idea (project) can be submitted that you think will have a positive effect in targeting poverty and inequalities in our community.

Project ideas can come from any organisation, group or individual in the community and those which reach the final selection process will be voted for by the community. Those who are successful will be funded. (See our guidance document and application form for application criteria)

Whilst any project idea is welcome there are some key area which would help........

Improve Health & Wellbeing

Strengthen Communities

Raising Achievement

Include Everyone

Employment & Training


Why are we doing this?

Poverty and inequalities is a big issue in our community and we want community projects that will try to make a difference and reduce the impact on both these areas through identifying areas that could help make a difference to people’s lives.
