As part of a national Scottish participatory budgeting project, Dunblane in Stirling had its youth engage in the process of directing funds toward local issues in order to increase their community engagement.

Problems and Purpose

Five participatory budgeting projects across Scotland received a share of £100,000 from the national government for the 'Community Wellbeing Champions Initiative'. Of the £100,000, the Stirling Community Safety Partnership received £30,000 which for running a pilot in the Dunblane area. The Stirling pilot is a youth-led process focused on addressing the disconnect between young people who are involved in aspects of antisocial behaviour in Dunblane and the wider community. It aimed to encourage young people to take ownership and responsibility for their behaviour and to build the capacity of young people to positively engage, both with community planning partners and with the wider community they live in.

Background History and Context

Participant Recruitment and Selection 

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]
