What is Generation CashBack?

Generation CashBack is an established project delivered by a partnership consortium of The Boys’ Brigade Scotland, Girlguiding Scotland, Scouts Scotland and Youth Scotland. Generation CashBack will continue to grow the scale and reach of community-based youth work in disadvantaged areas, enabling more young people to access safe spaces and develop their confidence, resilience and skills.

This project is supported through the CashBack for Communities programme. CashBack for Communities is a unique Scottish Government programme which takes money seized from criminals under the proceeds of crime legislation and invests them in our future – our young people.  Since 2008, £110 million has been committed to community initiatives to improve the quality of life of young people right across Scotland.

Can CashBack for Communities support you?

Funding is available to support young people (aged 10+) in the top 20% areas of social deprivation in each local authority.

This support can help develop your Boys’ Brigade work in two areas:

  • Grow: Supporting growth in membership, programme and opportunities
  • Lead: Supporting leadership training opportunities for young people

To find out if your company or battalion is eligible for support, please get in touch with Jackie Wilson, Development Officer, by emailing jackie.wilson@boys-brigade.org.uk or calling 01324 550859.
