Participatory Budgeting

PIGGYBANK

PiggybankPB

PIGGYBANK’ is an opportunity for young people across the Whitehawk, Manor Farm and Bristol estates to come together and help to shape and decide where money is spent on youth resources. With a Budget of around £20,000 the group will be able to make significant changes in the area.

Below you will be able to find a number of projects that applied for funding as part of our ‘Piggybank’ Project and each project was voted on through a community event at St Cuthmans church, Whitehawk and online. These were then collected by a young persons panel who decided where the funding was allocated.

With the funding available the panel was able to support the  top 17 projects voted for by the community.
