Event description

Description

For Participatory Budgeting to become established as a meaningful and sustainable mechanism for resource allocation, and improved real life outcomes for individuals and communities, PB needs to focus on the design and delivery of services, both within LA areas and among partner organisations.

These SIX awareness-raising/training events are designed to:

  • Create greater awareness of PB opportunities within LA areas, and among partner organisations
  • Give elected members/senior decision makers the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and understanding of possible PB options going forward
  • Provide a ‘hands-on’ opportunity for officers involved in delivery to work on developing PB plans

The format of each day will be:

  • AM Session 1: 10.30-11.30 Elected members/senior officers briefing – to consider strategic issues – timescales, resource implications etc
  • AM Session 2: 11.45-1.00 The PB story in Scotland, including mainstream options going forward (attendance open to all interested parties, from within the relevant LA departments, other service delivery areas, and partner organisations)
  • PM Session 3: 2.00-3.30 Planning a mainstream PB programme: workshop session with relevant officers across LA areas to develop planning/share information/expertise.

These events will be self-selecting – both in terms of which events to attend, and which parts of each event will be most relevant to the various stakeholders in the process, so that attendees get the ‘best value’ for them from the overall offer.
