Session 3 of the Deciding Together Participatory Funding Process is now complete
Who, What, How and How much?
The Deciding Together Local Fund York puts people in York in the control of £250,000 to spend on distributing grants in the city.
The fund is about fundamentally shifting things for people experiences multiple disadvantages.
The third session (of six) had 20 participants following lots of prior work, including which model of grant making we would use (A Bespoke Collaborative Decision Making Model) and developing a shared understanding around the parameters of the fund. For example, this could not fund illegal activity, or activity benefitting people outside York.
At the meeting on Wednesday 30th June 2021, the Deciding Together Local Fund York group came together to decide;
- What and who would be funded
- How much could be applied for
- How would people apply
