CashBack for Creativity Open Fund - Now receiving applications for 2019-2020

YouthLink Scotland is now receiving applications for the latest round of the CashBack for Creativity Open Fund for projects to be delivered between 1st April 2019 and February 2020.

The Cashback for Creativity Open Fund is a strand of Creative Scotland’s CashBack for Creativity programme which is 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.

We welcome proposals for the delivery of free, high quality arts, screen or creative industries activities for young people living in Scotland aged between 10 and 24 and 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.

The Open Fund seeks to reach all local authority areas in Scotland. However, for this final round of the fund we are particularly interested in receiving applications from the following areas:

  • Angus
  • Argyll and Bute
  • East Dunbartonshire
  • Orkney
  • Perth and Kinross
  • South Ayrshire
  • South Lanarkshire

A total of £300,000 is available.

The closing date for applications is 1pm on Friday 25 January 2019.
