CashBack For Communities Phase Four Impact Evaluation

CashBack Phase Four Summary of findings Between 2017 and 2020, CashBack for Communities reached more than 106,000 young people This is at least 20,000 more than expected. More than 62,000 were new to the activity. Many young people said that without CashBack, they would not be engaging in other positive activities. Over two thirds of the young people involved in phase four were from the most deprived neighbourhoods in Scotland 1 .

This is much higher than phase three of the CashBack programme, 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 in phase four. Young people also experienced a wide range of disadvantage and risk.
