CashBack for Communities

Cashback for Communities logoCashBack for Communities is the Scottish Government’s scheme to reinvest the proceeds of crime in local communities. The investment targets facilities and activities that have long-term benefits for young people, like the arts, youth work programmes and sport.

A total of £3.65 million will be invested Scottish rugby clubs between 2011 and 2014.

Enhancing opportunities

Scottish Rugby will channel £2.4 million towards enhancing playing and coaching opportunities for young people across all of Scotland’s 32 local authorities. This includes support for the successful national network of jointly-funded development staff, who act as a focal point for growing the game at the local level.

The remaining £1.25 million was awarded by way of a grant award scheme to local rugby clubs where there is a track record in growing the game at junior, youth and adult levels.

Clubs applied for awards of up to £50,000 to invest in new facilities, or upgrading existing ones, and priority was given to projects that benefit young people in areas of greatest need.
