Making A Difference: The CashBack Small Grants Scheme
A brand new publication has been produced to celebrate the fantastic projects that have been funded through the CashBack Small Grants Scheme, part of the Scottish Government's CashBack for Communities initiative.
The CashBack Small Grants Scheme, which is managed by Youth Scotland in partnership with Scottish Council - The Scout Association, Girlguiding Scotland, Boys Brigade, The Girls' Brigade in Scotland and Clubs for Young People (Scotland), has so far distributed over £233,000 to 252 individual projects across the country. Read all about them in the Making A Difference supplement. (You can also download the supplement as a PDF below).
In December 2010 the Scottish Government announced a further £500,000 investment in the scheme. Groups that are members of the partner organisations are eligible to apply for this new year of funding.
The deadlines are 1st June 2011, 1st September 2011, 1st December 2011, 1st March 2012 and 1st June 2012.
Grants of up to £1,000 are available to fund the start up costs of a group or unit, and up to £2,000 to fund an existing group to run a particular programme of activity. Groups should apply directly to the organisation of which they are a member.
