Youth groups throughout the Western Isles are probably making plans for their summer activities at home and abroad, at present. They may need financial help with activities or projects later in the year. The Scottish Government’s CashBack for Communities Fund for Youth Work may be able to help. The closing date for its next round of grant applications is September 16th, so August 2011 is really the best time to prepare and submit applications, if they are to be in time for the deadline. Details about the CashBack Fund, applications criteria, and application forms may be obtained from YouthLink Scotland, Rosebery House, 9 Haymarket Terrace, Edinburgh (tel. 0131 313 2488).
