Problems and Purpose

The Home Office awarded seven areas with the Engaged Communities Hallmark. As part of the Hallmark, they must implement PB. The seven areas are Tower Hamlets, Corby, Redcar, Gosport, Bristol, Knowsley and Blaenau Gwent.

Corby Hallmark area received £50,000 to help support the areas in implementing different aspects of the Hallmark. £20,000 of the funding was used for participatory budgeting on a community safety theme.

The Hallmarks are awarded to the police forces and their partners working in the areas.

Methods and Tools Used 

This initiative uses participatory budgeting, an increasingly common method of democratic innovation broadly described as "a decision-making process through which citizens deliberate and negotiate over the distribution of public resources." There are many benefits associated with participatory budgeting including increased civic and democratic education; increased government transparency; and an increased opportunity for participation by historically marginalized populations [1]
