Have you heard about phase 5 of Generation CashBack funding? This is part of a Scottish Government project which uses proceeds of crime to expand youth provision in areas of need. This funding can be used to support Guide and Ranger units which meet certain postcode criteria, or who can demonstrate that their activities support young people impacted by crime/ help divert them from paths that may lead to crime or antisocial behaviour.

If your unit would benefit from funding (up to £2000) for programme resources, leader training, uniform, sports equipment, tents, residential events, limited I.T. equipment and subscriptions etc. or you’re considering opening a new unit, DM us to find out more.
