The People’s Budget

Participatory budgeting directly involves local people in making decisions about the public money being spent in their community.

Every year your local council and also bodies like the Police, Housing Associations and the National Health Service make decisions about what they feel needs doing to our communities and in making their budget they decide how to share out the public money they control to achieve those goals. Participatory Budgeting allows the citizens living in an area (or within a specific community) to participate in the debate about what needs to be done and take decisions on the allocation of at least some of the available public funding.
