2 Aspirations of this workshop Share information about Scottish Government’s CashBack for Communities programme Share knowledge about partners’ activities and outcomes across Scotland Discuss evaluation approaches in the programme Hear from CashBack partners Discuss partnership working and future opportunities

3 CashBack – an overview The CashBack for Communities Programme is a unique Scottish initiative where money recovered from proceeds of crime is invested into community programmes, facilities and activities largely, but not exclusively, for young people CashBack funding is rightly focussed in communities hit by crime and anti-social behaviour but it is also right that every community across Scotland has the opportunity for its young people to work towards achieving their full potential CashBack funds partnerships with Scottish sporting, arts, business, community and youth associations to ensure delivery of projects in every local authority area in Scotland

4 CashBack – History and evolution Phase 1 – 2008 to 2011; Phase 2 – 2012 to 2014 Phase 1 focussed on sporting, cultural & youth work diversionary programmes Phase 2 expanded the programme to include mentoring, community, early years, employability and educational programmes Following this significant and rapid expansion of CashBack in 2011, the programme was subject to review and tightening of programme management including the bolstering of the delivery team function to focus on delivery of project accountability, communication & engagement and evaluation
