Fund title: Innovation in Democracy Programme
Focus of fund/fund aims:
To develop Citizens’ Assemblies in order to increase the capability of local people to have a greater say over decisions that affect their communities and their everyday lives.
4 January 2019
The Innovation in Democracy Programme will involve citizens in decision-making at local government level through innovative models of participatory democracy.
The programme aims to help local authorities to set up Citizens’ Assemblies whereby people representing a cross-section of the community come together in order to reach decisions on local issues.
The programme will provide up to £60,000 to support 8 to 10 local authorities to implement Citizens’ Assemblies. This will be complemented by online civic technology tools in order to extend the reach, transparency, and accountability of the process. An expert Democracy Support Contractor will also provide assistance.
