Delivery Partner for Cashback for Communities Contract Notice

January 31, 2023 by No Comments | Category Contract Notices, Procurement news, suppliers

In June 2022, it was announced that community projects are set to receive up to £20 million over the next three years to continue supporting young people and communities most affected by crime.

Since the programme began in 2008, Cashback for Communities has taken funds recovered through the Proceeds of Crime Act and provided crucial support to around 1.3 million young people across all local authorities.

Cashback has funded a wide variety of projects over the past 14 years including sports, arts, youth work and employability which provide extensive opportunities to raise the ambition and aspirations of young people.

The latest phase of funding will guide those most at risk of being impacted by crime, to more positive destinations while also helping young people to improve their physical and mental health.

The Scottish Government’s Directorate for Safer Communities requires a suitably qualified and experienced contractor to perform the role of Delivery Partner in relation to the CashBack for Communities Programme.

They are looking to appoint a contractor to provide expert support to individual third-party organisations who are in receipt of grant funds through Phase 6 of the CashBack for Communities Programme. The purpose of the support is to ensure that Project Partners fulfil their grant requirements and responsibilities on accountability, communications, monitoring, evaluation and performance reporting. The Delivery Partner will also provide relevant programme management and programme evaluation support to the Scottish Government in accordance with the terms of this specification.
