COVID-19 PB Works Response

COVID-19 PB Works Response

We are certainly living in unprecedented times and I hope each and everyone of you are staying safe and well and looking out for each other where it is safe to do so. We encourage everyone to follow the guidance of the World Health Organisation and our local public health officials.

It is unlikely that we will be able to hold face to face events for some time but that doesn't mean that we can't continue to connect and consider how we can support quality participatory budgeting processes which put people in the lead.

The response from local communities to this crisis has been overwhelming and humbling. There are countless examples of local groups, clubs and individuals taking the lead in providing support, reaching those in need and offering friendship and kindness.

Processes like PB which strengthen community connections and resilience and empower local communities will be even more important in the new world which we will all find ourselves in and can play a part in #buildbackbetter

PB Works would like to hear from you about how best we can stay in touch and continue to develop quality participatory budgeting. Please take two minutes to complete this short survey to help us plan and be more responsive to your needs https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/yourideasforqualityPB
