Participatory Budgeting Charter for Scotland

The charter is designed to make sure that every PB process involves good-quality democratic participation, resulting in positive outcomes for everyone involved.


What is the Charter?

The PB Charter sets out seven key features showing what a fair and high quality participatory budgeting (PB) process should look like.

It aims to ensure PB is inclusive, uses good quality methods and is truly participative.

The Charter is a co-produced resource, developed by people with experience of PB processes in Scotland, including those from equality groups, community organisations and public bodies.
