£IBERTON GILMERTON DECIDES - Intergenerational Activities
Goodtrees Neighbourhood Centre
3rd February 2017
On Friday, 3rd 2017 residents of Liberton Gilmerton Neighbourhood
Partnership area Had Their Say and
considered what community projects they wanted to see
It was a great day and many congratulations to everyone who
participated. All the projects do a great job. Local people found
the event motivating not least because they got a chance to find
out what good work is happening throughout the area.
We had a budget of £22,000 with 13 grant applications, totalling
£24,220 for consideration. Undernoted is the list of the winners in
order of popularity. It should be noted that originally the
budget was £20,000 but fortunately a further £2,000 was secured in
advance of the event, allowing more projects to be funded.
This increase was approved by the Scottish Government and the
Convener of the Neighbourhood Partnership.

Unfortunately, The Tattie Howkers were unsuccessful but we wish
them well with fund raising for this project. Nonetheless despite
not securing a grant we hope they managed to attract some new
volunteers/members and had a good chance to chat to the public and
let them know more about what they do.

An evaluation of the event will be presented to the Liberton
Gilmerton Neighbourhood Partnership at its meeting at its March
meeting and will be available to dowload here in due course.
This type of approach is called Participatory Budgeting or PB as
it is often known. It's a system where local people decide on how
local money is spent. Click here to
watch a short video on Edinburgh's PB initiatives.
Check our FAQs to find more about PB. On
the day, the scores will be totalled and the highest scoring
projects will secure the funding - until we reach the £20,000
What are intergenerational
Intergenerational involves two or more ages coming
together in a joint initiative, sharing memories, skills, knowledge
and having fun! This could be anything from sport, art, history,
environmental improvements, dance etc - basically whatever you like
as long as it involves two or more generations. An example of a
project could be Strictly Come Dancing where over a period of weeks
older people teach the younger generation how to do the Fox Trot,
Jive etc. It could also include one off events.
