YouthLink Scotland delivers the CashBack for Communities Fund scheme which provides awards to youth work organisations helping them to provide events and activities for young people aged 10 – 19 years.
CashBack for Communities provides opportunities for young people to develop their interests and skills in an enjoyable, fulfilling and supported way, using funds recovered from criminals. CashBack for Communities aims to divert young people away from anti-social behaviour.
The initiatives provided are open to all children and young people, although resources are focused on areas of high crime. The initiatives aim to increase the likelihood of positive long-term outcomes for those who take part.
