CashBack For Communities Phase Four Impact Evaluation


Chapter 5

Participation The CashBack programme (phase four) reached more than 106,000 young people. This is at 24,000 more young people than expected.

Profile More than two thirds (69%) of young people were from the 20% most deprived neighbourhoods of Scotland. This is much higher than in phase three, when around a third of participants were from the most deprived neighbourhoods. This indicates a strong focus on involving young people from areas of multiple deprivation and experiencing wider disadvantage. Broadly equal numbers of participants were male and female during phase four. The balance of participants during phase four was more balanced than during phase three. Partners achieved this through working closely with other organisations, strengthening their staff team and skills, introducing targeted activity, and regularly reflecting on the profile of participants and taking action.
