Big Dish Out Press Release

The Big Dish Out – is back!
Youth led participatory budgeting in Brighton

Brighton & Hove Youth Collective together with The Trust for Developing Communities is pleased to announce that “The Big Dish Out” is back and applications are now welcome!

This is the third year that this ‘Participatory Budgeting’ scheme has been run on behalf of Brighton & Hove City Council and because the 2012 and 2013 pilots were so hugely successful it is back for 2014.

The Big Dish Out is a youth led funding project where £20,000 is commissioned by Brighton and Hove City Council to a range of youth organisations for youth provision as voted for by young people themselves. This year The Trust for Developing Communities will lead a group of young people from the local area through a process on how this pot of money is to be spent on youth activities in Moulsecoomb, Coldean and Bevendean.

The Crew Club ran the Whitehawk programme in 2013.

It is a fantastic opportunity for small groups needing funding to apply for up to £1,000 and for larger organisations up to £3,000. Decisions on how money is allocated will be entirely up to local young people – voting either online or at a voting event on Saturday April 26th, 11-2pm at the 67 Centre, Moulsecoomb, Brighton.

Adam Muirhead, youth worker on the BDO 2014 Youth Steering Group said “this is a great way to engage young people in community activity and learn the principals of money, management and good causes. It also connects young people directly to what services they want to see delivered – the power is in their hands. The activity is carefully monitored by a team of youth workers.”

The last Big Dish Out event was a huge success with 16 projects presenting and over 60 young people coming to vote. In the end there were eleven large grants awarded and six smaller grants which enabled lots of local youth activities to happen. Successful groups included Safe and Sorted, BMEYPP, Albion in the Community, Active for Life, Rhythmix, Becca, Bevendean Activities Group, RAW New Life Church, Beventeen Bulletin, Bevendean Young Women’s Group and Falmer Girls football.

For information on eligibility and the application process there is a blog at https://bigdishout.wordpress.com and updates on all the developments will appear there or alternatively you can email thebigdishout@trustdevcom.org.uk

Applications are open for submission from now until 12 o’clock on Monday 24th March.

The Brighton and Hove Youth Collective is made up of eight local youth organisations including the Young People’s Centre(YPC) Crew Club, Deans Youth Project, Brighton Youth Centre, Tarner Community Project, Hangleton and Knoll Project, The Trust for Developing Communities and Sussex Central YMCA all of which are charities.

They have changed their approach in the last year and now work together to deliver a more efficient and co-ordinated programme of youth activities across Brighton and Hove in partnership with Brighton and Hove Council’s Youth Service. The “Youth Collective” deliver a ‘co-produced’ service with projects and programmes to develop and deliver an innovative, co-ordinated and responsive service to better meet the needs of young people living in the City
