We've helped more than 80 organisations engage citizens
on over £60bn of budgets. Here's how...

Using Delib...we opened the biggest budget conversation the city has seen.
Residents have come forward and offered constructive suggestions for what they
would like to see in the budget, and we've taken those into account.

Involving the Public in Tough Decisions on Challenging Budget Cuts

What East Dunbartonshire wanted

The Council needed to make substantial savings: some £20 million over three years. They wanted to ensure citizens were involved in this decision-making activity and so set out on a comprehensive 'Your Services, Your Choices' budget consultation.

How we helped

We supplied East Dunbartonshire with a 'savings-only' Budget Simulator. Residents could adjust sliders to reduce spending in different service areas by between 0% and 60% – encouraging deliberation around the hard choices facing the Council.


I’d encourage everyone to visit this online budget setting tool and see where they would find the £20 million we still need to save over the next three years. We really want to hear everyone’s views on where they think these savings can be made and whether there might be alternatives to these.
