What is Your Voice Your Choice?

"YourVoiceYourChoice2" is a Musselburgh Area Partnership initiative and is an exciting opportunity for the community to put forward local ideas for projects which will have a positive impact in tackling poverty and reducing inequalities in our community. Everyone in the communities of Musselburgh, Old Craighall, Wallyford and Whitecraig over the age of 8 can vote. A series of voting days will take place within the community during March.

How much money is available?

A total of £65,000 is available to fund projects. £20,000 has come from the Musselburgh Area Partnership along with a further £45,000 which was successfully bid for from the Scottish Governments Commmunity Choices Fund.

How much can I apply for?

Applications can be made for funding from £100 up to a maximum of £10,000 for a single project.

Note: If your project will cost more than the amount you are applying for, you must show that you will have the rest of the money, and can complete the project.
