2023 - 2026 Grant Offer


2023 - 2026 Young People Target


Project name: CashBack – Towards New Futures

Age range: 16 – 24 years

Number of Young People Project expects to work with: 168

A person-centred employability and re-engagement project for the highest tariff of vulnerable young people who have recently left prison or who are at risk of having experience of the criminal justice system.

Each of 12 planned courses will last eight weeks and will incorporate one-to-one post course aftercare from dedicated staff, including access to a Trauma Counselling Service. The Foundation believes that this extended programme duration gives optimum time for course participants and Foundation staff to create a lasting and trusting relationship, supporting the candidate towards their aspirations.

As an accredited SQA centre, the Rangers Charity Foundation offers expert support for prisoners upon release, with the focus of supporting integration back into the community and improving their mental health and wellbeing, whilst exploring opportunities to progressing into employment and positive destinations. The project also targets young people who are on the cusp of incarceration and have been involved with the Police.

The project builds upon the success of the Foundation’s CashBack Phase 5 approach, allowing the participants to re-engage in a compassionate, empathetic environment and gain accredited qualifications, work and volunteering experience, participate in job search workshops and liaise with range of potential employers and training providers.

Areas where project will be delivered:

East Dunbartonshire; East Renfrewshire; Falkirk; Glasgow City; Inverclyde; North Ayrshire; North Lanarkshire; Renfrewshire; South Lanarkshire; West Dunbartonshire
