Why use Budget Simulator for budgetary engagement?

Budget Simulator is an online Citizen participation and engagement tool that allows organizations to run meaningful Budget and priority-­?based citizen engagement. It is designed to improve the Process for all involved; whether that be citizens contributing better informed responses, or organizations receiving better quality information about the wishes of service users.

It represents a completely different methodology to that of traditional forms of budget engagement, and, in a time of austerity, has also been instrumental in helping to effectively communicate the difficult spending decisions being faced, to those who will be affected. The app is fully translatable, and accepts all currencies.
