Problems and Purpose

In Cumbria a form of participatory budgeting has been around for a long time through the Neighbourhood Forum Grants mechanism. They are available for any non-profit making organisation that is involved in helping local residents. In 2009 Neighbourhood Forums awarded grants to 965 schemes. Each of the 60+ forums has a grants budget and each area also has its own priorities. Grants are administered on at local level where members of the public attending the forum vote on the allocation.
