The £eith decides Steering Group meet on 25 November 2013 to assess applications against Community Grants Criteria.  It is expected that invitations to take part in the Libraries Poster Exhibition and decision-making event will be sent to all applicants whose projects meet community grants criteria by 6 December 2013.

 A poster exhibition of projects will take place in McDonald Road and Leith Libraries from 13 January to 7 February 2014.  You may score projects in the library or submit scores by post up to 5.00 pm on 7 February 2013.  Please Note:  If you score projects in the library or by post you cannot score projects again at the event.  Library and/or postal scoring sheets will not be accepted after 7 February 2013.

The decision-making event is on 15 February 2014 at the Leith Community Education Centre at New Kirkgate.  Previous participating Local Community Groups have found that the events provide a valuable opportunity to promote themselves, recruit new volunteers and/or participants, network with other groups as well as the possibility of being made a community grant award.  Local People have said that the events are fun and that they enjoy learning about Leith through the applicant groups. 

There are lots of reasons for taking part, either as an applicant or in scoring projects to make the decision on which projects are given a community grant.

Support through the application process is available for Community Groups who wish to apply.  Contact:  Jackie Mearns, Community Learning and Development, Duncan Place Resource Centre, Duncan Place, Edinburgh.  Telephone 0131 554 9951 or e-mail jackiemearns@ea.edin.sch.uk.

The people of Leith are asked to give every project a score out of 5.  Everyone 8 yrs or older, who lives, works, volunteers or studies in the Leith Neighbourhood Partnership area can score projects.  Come along to the event if you can.  But if you can’t postal scoring sheets are available from 13 January by e-mailing Loraine.duckworth@edinburgh.gov.uk or from the library.
