THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO VOTE FOR YCSA FOR FUNDING SOME OF OUR LOCAL PROJECTS!
YCSA needs your help! This project is an opportunity to help us gain some important funding that can help us provide our local communities with the services we offer and want to continue to!
Twenty nine amazing projects are seeking funding for work to improve life for people of all ages and backgrounds in Ward 6 (including Pollokshields, Crossmyloof, Maxwell Park, Shawlands, Strathbungo, Craigton, Dumbreck and Bellahouston).
There are two ways to take part in our Community Vote – voting in person at the Community Voting Event, or voting online.
The community voting event is on Sunday 15th December 2019 – 11am–2pm at Pollokshields Burgh Hall (NOT A DROP-IN EVENT – PLEASE SEE DETAILS BELOW)
Join us to support some great local community organisations, and choose your favourite ideas to receive project funding.
The event is FREE to attend and no fundraising will be taking place. The funding that will be awarded is provided by Glasgow City Council, and how it’s spent is up to you!
What happens on the day?
Arrive by 11.00am to register for your vote – You need to be registered by the time we start to be able to vote, so it’s important to be on time.
If you’re not sure whether your area is part of Ward 6, check by entering your postcode on this webiste and then clicking Multi Member Council Ward below the map. It should say Pollokshields, which is the official name for the wider Ward 6 area – which is where YCSA is!
There will be a chance to mingle and ask questions, as well as enjoy some delicious food.
Next comes the vote! Choose your five favourite projects, and give a vote to each one. Everyone will be asked to post their completed voting sheets in a sealed ballot box.
The projects with the most total votes will be awarded funding, moving down the list of projects by number of votes until the money runs out.
Finally, we’ll announce the results and celebrate!
If you can’t make it on 15th december? vote online now!
If you can’t make it along, you can still vote online at www.ward6.communitychoices.scot before the event.
Online voting will be open until 1pm on 15th December, and the results will be combined with the votes from the event when these are counted.
Please be aware that you can’t vote both times, so only vote online if you’re sure you can’t come to the Community Voting Event.
