Leithers choose how funds will be spent in their community

For the past seven years, City of Edinburgh has run Leith Decides - an event where the people of Leith are directly involved in deciding how Council Community Grants should be spent locally.

Last year, Leith Links Community Council successfully obtained Scottish Government funding and ran a smaller-scale event for community projects in the Leith Links area.

This year, Leith Links Community Council has been awarded further Scottish Government "Community Choices" funding.  The three Leith Community Councils are teaming up with City of Edinburgh Council to create a much larger overall pot of cash for the community in Leith. 

Applications for Leith Chooses will be invited very soon, and voting will be in March 2018.

Many things will be similar to previous years but there are a few exciting changes too. 

The project Launch & first Funding Workshop will be held on 22nd November in Leith Community Education Centre, New Kirkgate, at 6pm

Come along and find out more!

More details will follow in the coming weeks.
