Building on the success of Phase 4, CashBack to the Future aims to provide positive, creative activity for young people aged 12 to 19, across 5 Local Authority Areas in Scotland. There will be 2 programmes per year over Phase 5:

Summer programme:

  • Delivered over the summer holidays (July)
  • Delivered in accessible community-based locations
  • Multiple art forms
  • Four full days per week, for four weeks
  • SCQF accreditation – Dynamic Youth Award or Youth Achievement Award
  • Local celebration events

Post-summer:

  • 80 young people supported to continue year-round programme
  • Workshops delivered full-day Saturday and two afternoon/evening sessions per week per area, for 40 weeks of the year
  • 4 days/ area specialist/guest artists

CashBack to the Future is youth-led and content will be directed and produced by the young people. A team of artists will become inspiring facilitators, supported by a dedicated youth worker team. Individual and group-based support and guidance will be provided to all young people. Creative projects will focus on “Community”, connecting young people with their local area. Creativity allows young people to share their voices, experiences, aspirations and talents. Music, drama, digital and visual arts offer alternative connections for young people who are currently disengaged from positive activities, education or employment.   CashBack to The Future is a positive solution, providing alternative opportunities for young people to express themselves, gain skills, learn and realise personal growth.

Areas where project will be delivered:

Glasgow: Carntyne West and Haghill

Edinburgh: Old Town and Leith

Renfrewshire: Paisley, Ferguslie

East Ayrshire: Altonhill South, Longpark and Hillhead

North Ayrshire: Irvine Central
