Activity number represents the number of activities and opportunities that young people have taken advantage of as a result of CashBack for Communities funding. It should be noted that CashBack for Communities partners may have worked with some of the same young people over a number of financial years. Therefore the total annual activity and opportunity figures might not directly correlate to the number of individual young people who have been involved with CashBack for Communities.
