Localities Bid Fund 2 Evaluation

Closed 12 Jan 2020

Opened 27 Nov 2019


The purpose of the Localities Bid Fund (LBF) was to support community groups to develop ideas or projects which improved the lives of people living in the Scottish Borders. 

The decision as to which groups were awarded funding was made via a public vote. This process is called participatory budgeting.

Round 2 of the fund was open to applications during January and February 2019. The public were able to vote for their favourite projects during May and June 2019. 

This is the second time that Scottish Borders Council has used participatory budgeting. We learnt a lot from what you told us following the first round of the Localities Bid Fund. Your comments helped us develop the process for LBF2.

We would be really grateful if you would complete this short evaluation to give us your views on LBF2, this will help us develop any future participatory budgeting processes.
