The Money for Moray team is made up of 15 volunteer community representatives who came together in early 2016 to design and deliver a pilot Participatory Budgeting (PB) grant scheme in Moray. PB is a process whereby the residents of Moray decide how public money is allocated based on their needs and priorities.
