Your money, your choice

Falkirk Council's Housing Services are committed to working closely with tenants and other customers to improve the services we offer. The project award scheme, 'Community Choices – Tenants' Choice' allows you to have a say on how rent money is spent to benefit the lives of tenants and/or the communities where they live.

The scheme has been set up to encourage formal, constituted groups to think about small projects that would not normally be done through routine service delivery.

Projects done through the 'Make a Difference' project award scheme that 'Community Choices – Tenants' Choice' replaces, included:

  • community gardens
  • refurbishment of common rooms
  • buying soft play equipment
  • providing seating in communal areas
  • buying digital devices
  • part-funding bicycles for 'Cycle Without Age' etc

Guidance notes

The project you are applying for should aim to meet all, or some, of the following criteria:

  • Benefit Falkirk Council tenants.
  • Help improve the quality of life in your community.
  • Enhance the environment and/or improve the appearance of a housing estate where there are Falkirk Council tenants.
  • Help solve a problem identified by your group.

Applications for up to £2,500 will be considered (subject to availability).

Please use your response to the question - 'Tell us how the project will improve the quality of life in your community' - to describe your project to voters.
