    Costs
    This event is free to attend but to encourage attendance and try and ensure a good turnout to benefit all delegates, we will charge a non-attendance fee of £25.00 per delegate. By submitting a booking for this event you agree to pay this fee for those delegates who have places booked but do not attend.

    Cancellations can be received up to 5 working days ahead of the event, thus avoiding non-attendance fees. A cancellation will only be valid if we have confirmed it with you. You can send somebody else in place of a booked delegate without incurring a non-attendance fee.


    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    As Participatory Budgeting (PB) grows across Scotland there is a need for skilled facilitators from across the sectors, third and public, to support emerging local processes. To help make this happen a one day training course has been scheduled here in Fife this May.

    The training will be highly participative, with plenty of opportunities to discuss PB and how it works in the real world. The course will cover essential elements in planning and delivering a PB process and cover:

    • Forming a planning group - capacity building with the group
    • Selecting a theme and criteria for the PB fund
    • Thinking about equalities – having all voices represented from the community
    • Marketing – posters/simple application forms/word of mouth
    • Choosing an event or an online process approach - different ways of doing PB in the community
    • Voting options
    • Feeding the result back to the community
    • Evaluation – learning the lessons and how to repeat them

    This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action in partnership with Fife Council and the Scottish Community Development Centre.
