Applications are invited from Lochaber groups for a share of £30,000  – Your Voice, Your Choice 2016

Following the success of last year’s participatory budgeting funding opportunity, Lochaber Councillors have made a further £30,000 available for distribution to a range of groups, clubs and projects that improve the quality of life for people living in Lochaber.

Whether you are involved in a club that needs a bit of extra cash to do something new, have an interesting idea you want to get off the ground or are struggling to raise funds to keep a vital service going, this could be a great chance to get a share of the money.

Applications will be put to a public on-line vote (with a postal option as well).  It’s the people of Lochaber that will decide who gets the money.

Application forms and guidance are available from Highland Council Service Points in the Lochaber area, Libraries, Lochaber Secondary Schools, the Leven Centre - Kinlochleven, Lochaber Leisure Centre and Voluntary Action Lochaber (An Drochaid, Claggan) or you can download the application form and guidance at:

The closing date for receipt of applications is 2nd September 2016, 5pm
