CashBack for Communities phase 6: equality impact assessment

Equality impact assessment (EQIA) to consider the impacts on equality of the development of policy for phase 6 of the Cashback for Communities programme. The programme uses money recovered under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 to fund projects for children and young people.

6. Recommendations and conclusions

The Cashback Programme is a well-established and successful programme that has supported around 1.3 million children and young people since 2008. The programme continues to support children and young people across Scotland, providing a wide range of activities and support services to help bring about positive life changes.

Over 30,000 children and young people benefitted from CashBack projects between 2021 and 2022 alone, despite the residual impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The programme will continue to be delivered through a range of partners and focus on providing support, activities and opportunities for young people. We will use the Phase 5 evaluation to review the programme. We will monitor the potential effects of new legislation on future policy development.
