Maryhill & Ruchill Funding Opportunity!

FaceBook  Twitter  

Thanks to funding from the Scottish Government & Maryhill Housing Association young people from Maryhill/Ruchill have been deciding how £40,000 will be spent in their community. Young Movers (YoMo) have been consulting young people on the criteria, priorities and who can get involved in deciding which projects receive funding at our decision making event on Tuesday 19th March 2019.

This approach is known as Participatory Budgeting and it is where local people decide through a voting event how public money will be spent locally. This is different from traditional ways of funding projects where decisions are usually made by a small number of people.

Who can apply

  • Any local group can apply for funding for an idea that supports people from Maryhill/Ruchill.

How much is available

  • You can apply for between £100 and £5,000
  • The total amount of money we have to distribute is £40,000

  • Projects that benefit young people
  • Projects that promote health and wellbeing

Before you apply

  • Please read the application form fully
  • If you are unsure if your proposal is suitable for this programme just get in touch and we will advise you

How to apply

  • Return completed application form to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  • Application deadline: 3pm Monday 11th March 2019.
  • A steering group made up of young people will review the applications received and based on the criteria and priorities listed above will shortlist a number of projects that will put to a public vote at the decision making event
  • You will be asked to attend the voting event on Tuesday 19th March 2019 and make your case for funding, through an information stall.
  • Members of the community and other applicants will then vote on who gets funded.
