CashBack for Communities

SPFL Trust

Cashback Off The Bench is a 16 week programme for young people aged 18-24, which will be delivered by 5 Scottish Professional Football League Club Trusts within their local communities. With support from key partners Police Scotland, Scottish Fire & Rescue and the Procurator Fiscal, trained coaches will work to encourage positive behaviour change in areas such as, but not limited to, alcohol and drug consumption, anti-social behaviour, sectarianism and racism.

Participants will also improve their employability skills, attainment level, physical activity and mental wellbeing through engaging and motivating workshops delivered by clubs and additional partners. Meanwhile, participants will improve their football skills, have the chance to take part in an annual football event and complete a meaningful community project of their own design.
