What is '£eith decides'?
£eith decides is an approach
used by Leith Neighbourhood Partnership to allocate 50% of its
Community Grants Fund.
This type of approach is called Participatory Budgeting
(PB) and allows you to decide about issues that matter to
you. If you're part of a local group you can put
forward your own ideas, and then local people vote on
them. So it is more than asking people what they think
- local people make the decisions.

FAQs or contact Katie
