Generation Cashback

We’re very excited to launch phase 5 of Generation CashBack, 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, or 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, we would love to hear from you.

In the new phase we have already supported various units to purchase materials to send to their members so that they can continue to participate in guiding activities during lockdown, even if they don’t have the resources to do this at home. The new phase of CashBack also allows for limited IT and subscriptions to be funded, so we have assisted units with Zoom subscriptions to facilitate online guiding, and with tablet computers. We have also provided support to secure storage for camping equipment, as well as the usual programme materials, badge books, UMAs, uniforms, etc.

We know many units have been impacted by the effects of furlough and job losses as a result of Covid-19 and we can provide support with resources and uniform where unit income is down, help with rent, materials required to facilitate a safe return to face-to-face guiding (when allowed), and at the beginning of next year, assistance with paying the Girlguiding subscriptions.

If you are looking to open a new unit, or have opened a unit within the last 3 months, please get in touch to see how we can support you with advice and the associated costs.
