Residents aged 8 and over are eligible to take part with the voting period ending on Friday 26 March.

Blackburn Community Choices will see a funding pot of £25,000 allocated to local projects which aim to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals and families in Blackburn.   Groups and organisations have come forward with their ideas on how to do this and now residents are being asked to select their three favourites from a shortlist.

The shortlist can be viewed on the Blackburn Community Choices section of the West Lothian Council website where you can also find a link to the voting platform to cast your vote.

A telephone voting system has been launched to enable people who don't have access to the internet or technology to be able to take part in the vote. This is available between the hours of 10am-12 and 2pm-4pm by phoning 01506 281101 until Friday 26 March. Residents will also be able to read about the projects that have applied for funding in the Community Action Blackburn Newsletter.

The Blackburn project is part of West Lothian Community Choices, West Lothian's version of Participatory Budgeting - a democratic process which empowers people and communities to have a greater say in how public money is spent.
