Project name: CashBack NorthEast
Age range: 10 – 25 years
Number of Young People Project expects to work with: 525
shmu’s CashBack NorthEast programme has three key components; prioritising engagement with 525 vulnerable and disadvantaged young people across the North East; supporting them to overcome their personal barriers in order to avoid becoming involved in anti-social behaviour; and reducing the likelihood of reoffending for justice experienced young people.
Youth Media Project will provide person-centred creative opportunities for young people (10-18yrs) from the regeneration areas of Aberdeen. The programme will provide support, motivation, skills development and learning through exciting and creative mediums; encouraging participants to set bold but meaningful targets for self-development.
Training Academy will offer coordinated support to young people attending secondary schools across the region. Targeting pupils who have been identified as highly unlikely to secure a positive destination, the programme will offer a needs-led, positive hands-on experience, developing personal and vocational skills through media and employability modules and will include work-place visits and work experience placements.
Engage will support young people in the community who are justice experienced with a focus on breaking their cycle of offending. The programme will use media as a tool for engagement, providing meaningful group activity and opportunities for ongoing volunteering, with our support service providing a wraparound holistic and person-centred package of support.
