YOUR COMMUNITY, YOUR VOICE, YOUR CHOICE!
Do you have an idea that you feel would have a positive impact on your community? Do you think this idea could be turned into a project and brought to life?
If so, look no further than the Tak£500+ PB (Participatory Budgeting) fund.
WHAT IS TAK£500?
Tak£500+ is a Participatory Budgeting process which means that local people get to decide how public funds are used to address needs in their area. Community Planning Partners have pooled their resources to fund community projects.
Communities can apply for up to £1000 for a project they think will benefit their area – and best of all, it is the local residents who decide which projects should go ahead!
WHO CAN APPLY?
The fund is open to everyone from:
Both constituted groups and non-constituted groups can apply for funding.
There must be a minimum of three people per group.
Each group can apply for one project per area (Armagh, Banbridge & Craigavon).
Children and young people aged eight and above can also form a group and apply for funding. If you are under 18, you will need an Adult Sponsor to support your application and to help develop and deliver your idea. You will also need a parent or guardian to sign your application form (More details on this below).
If your group is not constituted, you will need to be sponsored by a constituted group or organisation.
A maximum of two applications can be received from groups from any one organisation or umbrella group e.g., if a Local Sports Club has Junior or Senior Groups or a Primary or Secondary School has multiple year groupings. If we receive more than three applications, we will contact you and ask you to choose which applications you want to be considered.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
You can apply for up to £1000 to pay for things such as online activities, equipment, events, tutors, venue hire, transport for trips and other innovative ideas. *
All ideas must be based around the ‘Take 5 Ways of Wellbeing’. These are five simple steps to help maintain and improve your wellbeing on a daily basis.
