CashBack for Communities Youth Work Fund

YouthLink Scotland administers the CashBack for Communities Youth Work Fund, helping to build the capacity of young people and the youth work organisations who work to support them.

Please note: this fund is now closed. 

For 2019/20, the fund will support the Scottish Government’s aim to tackle inequalities by having a greater focus on young people from areas of deprivation. 

We welcome proposals for the delivery of targeted youth work activity programmes which provide diversionary youth work activities for young people aged 10 to 24, who face one or more forms of disadvantage as listed below:

  • Living in areas of deprivation (priority will be given to projects working in communities within the top 20% SIMD)
  • Being unemployed, not in education or training;
  • Being excluded, or at risk of exclusion from school;
  • Being at risk of being involved in antisocial behaviour, offending/re-offending.
