CashBack for Communities

  • Summary: Create a central hub of information for CashBack for Communities, a Scottish Government program that invests in young people.
  • My role: Research.
  • Target users: Members of Parliament, local government representatives, non-profits.
  • Impact: Created a website that captured the collective impact of the program while making it easy for people on a local level to see how they could get involved.

CashBack for Communities is a Scottish Government program that takes funds that are recovered proceeds of crime and invests them into activities for young people across Scotland. 

I worked as a liaison between the Scottish Government, the venture philanthropy organization Inspiring Scotland, and a web development company to create a new website that would demonstrate the collective impact of the  program. Our focus in particular was shedding light into how public funding was directly impacting local areas. 

My role was to work with partners on a local level to understand the impact the CashBack for Communities funding was having in their area. 


The challenge 

Our project centered around two key questions: How might we create a central hub for information on the CashBack for Communities program? How might we bring transparency into how the funding is spent on the local level?

Target audience
