Udecide logo Copyrighted  image Icon Copyright: Udecide Udecide is described by the Participatory Budgeting Unit as "a participatory budgeting programme which has given thousands of children in the city the opportunity to influence the allocation of £3.81m to improve the lives of their peers. Recognising that children and young people are the experts, the project aimed to give those young people in the city who were most likely to benefit from the Fund, the chance to have a real say in how it was allocated".

It was initiated by government and encourages people to participate through public assembly and special events. Udecide is local in orientation and concerned with economy and neighbourhood & community.

It was launched in 2006 and is ongoing.
