Youth Scotland funded in Phase 4 of the CashBack for Communities Programme
EDINBURGH, UK (November 16, 2016) – Youth Scotland today announced it has been successfully funded as part of CashBack for Communities Phase 4.
A total of 17 organisations have been awarded the money, seized from criminals operating in Scotland, in the latest round of CashBack funding.
The successful projects will provide opportunities in employability, sport, creativity and diversionary youth work to help raise the attainment, aspirations and ambition of disadvantaged young people across Scotland.
Funding has been made available to Youth Scotland to operate a small grants programme for new and existing youth groups operating in areas of deprivation. Grants will support organisations to improve the range of activities and opportunities for young people within their local communities.
Speaking about the announcement today, Ian McLaughlan, Youth Scotland’s Chief Executive said, “Youth Scotland, on behalf of a consortium proposal with Scouts Scotland, GirlGuiding Scotland, and The Boys’ Brigade Scotland, looks forward to delivering transformative change to the lives of young people in the most deprived areas throughout Scotland in Phase 4 of the Scottish Government funded CashBack for Communities programme. We have planned an exciting programme to establish new voluntary led youth provision, the development of existing groups, and the delivery of leadership and skills development training to enhance the life chances of young people most in need.”
