YouthLink Scotland Announces Final Round of Cashback for Creativity Open Fund

This scheme provides funding to increase the number of young people participating in high quality arts programmes in Scotland.

The CashBack for Creativity Open Fund has been established to support organisations seeking small amounts of funding to deliver creative activities for young people in Scotland – primarily those who have traditionally found it hardest to access creative opportunities.

Throughout the current cycle of the programme £300,000 will be awarded to support community-based arts projects, with individual proposals being able to access awards of up to £10,000 to deliver up to 12 months of creative activity for young people.

Awards from the fund will be made to organisations in the arts, screen and creative industries, third sector and youth work sector. Applicants should be based in Scotland, working with young people and supporting the delivery of free community-based arts activities for those aged 10-24 who are living in Scotland.

The scheme seeks to reach all local authorities in Scotland. However, for this final round the provider is particularly interested in receiving applications from the following areas: Angus, Argyll and Bute, East Dunbartonshire, Orkney, Perth and Kinross, South Ayrshire and South Lanarkshire.


The deadline for applications is 1pm on Friday 25 January 2019.
