CashBack for Communities

CashBack for Communities is the Scottish Government's vehicle for reinvesting the proceeds of crime back into communities to benefit Scotland's young people.


CashBack for Communities Facilities Fund

The £2 million CashBack facilities fund will be used to support projects aimed at getting young people active. The fund is being administered by YouthLink Scotland who are inviting applications from community organisations working with disadvantaged young people across Scotland to apply for a share of this funding strand to upgrade equipment and improve their facilities in a bid to get more young people involved in sport and physical activity.

CashBack for Communities Youth Work Fund

YouthLink Scotland administers the CashBack for Communities Youth Work Fund to build the capacity of young people and the youth work organisations who work to support them. We welcome proposals for operating costs relating to the delivery of youth work activity programmes that add to or consolidate the excellent youth work already being undertaken throughout Scotland.

The Youth Work Fund for 2017-18 is now open for applications. 



CashBack for Creativity Open Fund

The Open Fund is a strand of Creative Scotland’s CashBack for Creativity programme which is being delivered in partnership with YouthLink Scotland. It is a part of the Scottish Government’s CashBack for Communities programme which reinvests the proceeds of crime back into communities to benefit Scotland’s young people. A total of £250,000 will be invested in community-based arts programmes with individual proposals being able to access awards of up to £10,000.
