Engage COVID 19 Update - 16 September
Celebrating Renfrewshire Fund - Deadline extended!
The Celebrating Renfrewshire Fund - by young people, for young people - gives you, as a young person, a voice in your community and lets you decide how to make living as a young person in Renfrewshire better.
Through youth participatory budgeting, young people from Renfrewshire Youth Voice have come together to set out what the £150,000 fund should be spent on and how it will benefit their fellow young people in Renfrewshire.
All you need to do is come up with an idea, fill out an application and your peers will vote on what they believe will make the biggest difference to their area.
