To ask the Scottish Government when community groups, which were previously funded by CashBack for Communities, will be informed if any cashback funding will be made available to local communities or youth groups between 2023 and 2026.
The CashBack for Communities fund is a unique programme that reinvests money recovered from the proceeds of crime to support young people across Scotland.
The 29 organisations that successfully applied for Phase 6 funding were notified about the award in March 2023. Four community groups that previously received indirect funding in Phase 5 were successful in applying for direct funding in Phase 6.
Other previously funded community and youth groups have been informed about the availability of continued funding through Phase 6. This information was circulated in March 2023 by the partners that previously supported groups in Phase 5.
Details of all the Phase 6 CashBack partners were announced on 13 March 2023 and are available on the CashBack for Communities website:
