What is Voice Your Choice? Voice Your Choice is a Participatory Budgeting process, offering small grants of up to £2,000 for ideas that support positive steps towards employment for ages 16+.

How to get involved: The community are invited to come along to a voting event in their locality, visit the marketplace to find out more about the projects, and have your say on how public money is spent, by selecting several projects which will be gathered to decide which employability themed projects receive funding in the area. Successful projects will be announced on the day.

The funding Available: There is a total pot of £40,000 to distribute across Edinburgh’s four localities, with each locality allocating £10,000 to projects in their area. The fund is provided by Community Choices and Edinburgh Council.

Who is eligible to vote? Anyone who is over the age of 16, that lives or uses services within the locality of the voting event they are attended is eligible to vote. Voters will be asked to fill in a short registration form, and support will be available if needed.

Event Schedule:

10.30am: Doors Open
10.30am – 12.00pm: The ‘Marketplace’ – find out more about the projects and score each project (refreshments will be available during this period).
12.00pm – 13.00pm: Community Social Lunch
13.15 – 13.30: Successful Projects are announced
