‘How-to’ guide to grant making through participatory budgeting


Launched in September 2016, this guide was written by PB Partners, at the request of the Scottish Government, to support the £2m Community Choices programme. Specifically written with community led organisations in mind but also useful for front line workers or local authorities starting out on using Participatory Budgeting (PB) it condenses PB Partners’ learning from over 15 years of doing PB in the UK. It lays out a simple 10 step process for PB grant making, from forming a planning group right through the monitoring and evaluation, with a range of customisable templates and links to further information.

The guide is complemented by a briefing ‘Mainstreaming Participatory Budgeting: Ideas for delivering PB at Scale’ which aims to support public sector organisations wishing to develop ‘mainstream’ Participatory Budgeting initiatives.
