Youth Scotland

2023 - 2026 Grant Offer


2023 - 2026 Young People Target


Project name: Generation CashBack 

Age range: 10 – 25 years

Number of Young People Project expects to work with: 8,000

Generation CashBack is run by Youth Scotland, Scouts Scotland, Girlguiding Scotland and the Boys’ Brigade. The programme supports disadvantaged young people across Scotland to benefit from community-based youth work. Reaching 8,000 young people over three years, we will deliver CashBack outcomes through two strands:


Local Development Officers will enable groups to increase their focus on: tackling anti-social behaviour, delivering diversionary activity, and other issue-based work such as ACEs awareness and climate action. LDOs will support groups to: recruit volunteers, upskill youth workers, deliver new activities, and will also provide capacity-building funding (up to £2K). Using a needs-analysis approach, we will develop existing groups in disadvantaged communities. Where there are no youth groups found, we will support local communities to establish groups.


We will deliver leadership and peer-mentoring opportunities across a variety of themes including physical activity, climate action, youth participation and positive mental health. Young people will be supported to put skills into practice in their communities, and gain a range of youth awards that are designed to meet their needs and improve education and employability options. Young people will co-produce three national ‘Reach’ events, themed around health and wellbeing, climate action, and youth voice.
