Vibrant Communities supported 12 East Ayrshire communities to hold participatory budgeting events during 2017.
Each community had up to £10,000 to award to groups and individuals with an idea for a project which will benefit the local community. Funding was provided by the Scottish Government’s Community Choices Fund, East Ayrshire Council and East Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership. Each event had a presentation or marketplace format.

The ‘You Decide - Mauchline Matters’ and ‘You Decide - Valley Ventures’ (Darvel/Newmilns) events gave local people the opportunity to choose which community groups received money for projects in their areas. A list of successful groups for each event are: Mauchline Matters and Valley Ventures.
