Thanks to funding from the Scottish Government & Maryhill Housing Association young people from Maryhill/Ruchill have been deciding how £40,000 will be spent in their community. Young Movers (YoMo) have been consulting young people on the criteria, priorities and who can get involved in deciding which projects receive funding at our decision making event on Tuesday 19th March 2019.

This approach is known as Participatory Budgeting and it is where local people decide through a voting event how public money will be spent locally. This is different from traditional ways of funding projects where decisions are usually made by a small number of people.

Who can apply
