OPFS Briefing: Participatory Budgeting
A recent Community Choices Project, funded by Scottish Government, held its Participatory Budgeting event for parents and children from two primary schools in Castlemilk. Over 170 Parents, families and children attended. Parents and children pitched ideas to those attending, on how to use £20,000 to reduce the cost of the school day. The parents from the two groups had been supported by OPFS over a period of months to suggest ideas on how to use £10,000 in their school to reduce the cost of the school day. Parents helped organise the day and took the lead in the activities.
