Scotland’s next census will be held in March 2022. This census will be a digital first census and we want to encourage as many households in Scotland as possible to complete it online. We would like to invite you to one or more of the online events listed below, to give you information on how the census will be delivered and how you can help get messages and support to those groups you already support in other ways, to ensure they can take part in the census and be counted.
Each online event will last no longer than 30 minutes and we invite you to register for the relevant event by clicking on the link below.
Happy news – £eith Chooses funds are growing, so more than 11 projects will get funded! The fund started with £46,106 from the Council’s Community Grant Fund, and then that was supplemented by a donation of £5,000 from the Port of Leith Housing Association (POLHA). And now we have had confirmation of a further donation of £5,000 to come from the Trams to Newhaven project. A huge thank you to both of these organisations for their generosity!
So £56,106 is available to fund projects in Leith, with allocation to be decided by participatory budgeting. That is, the people of Leith choose which projects are funded. (This will be via online voting in January 2022.) Check out http://www.leithchooses.netfor all the news!

thoughts and feedback. This fun event will also feature children’s’ nature activities, charity stalls, Plant Sale, and Guided Walks of the Park and Leith
