Your Voice Your Choice Kincardine & Mearns is nearing the end of this year’s application phase!

Do you have an idea for a project which will help make a positive difference to health, wellbeing or community links for Inverbervie, Gourdon, Benholm, Johnshaven or St Cyrus?

 

If so, you could apply for up to £10,000 from a total available fund of £30,000. There is still time to submit an application for this year’s funding before the deadline of Friday 26th May.

Application forms are available from:

Aberdeenshire Council, Viewmount, Stonehaven

KDP Office, 42-46 Barclay St, Stonehaven

What’s On Bervie Shop, 75 King St, Inverbervie

You can also download the form from the website: www.ouraberdeenshire.org.uk/Application-Form-South-Mearns-2017

What is this?

This is an exciting initiative where decisions on which projects get funding are made not by politicians or officers but by the people who will benefit the most – the people who live in the Coastal Strip villages of Inverbervie, Gourdon, Benholm, Johnshaven and St Cyrus. ‘Participatory Budgeting’ as this process is known is all about removing barriers and getting communities directly involved in local decision-making – putting the power in the hands of the local community.

Who can apply?

Anyone who has an idea that will benefit people living in the eligible Coastal Strip villages above. This can be any community group (including informal groups), voluntary or non-profit organisations.

Where can I get further information?

If you would like some advice or support with making an application, please get in touch – we have a team of advisors who would be delighted to help.
