Recruiting now for August Cashback For Communities - Towards New Futures Course

Mon 19th July 2021

The Rangers Charity Foundation’s Cashback For Communities – Towards New Futures programme aims to re-engage young people with current or past convictions or who have experience of the criminal justice system and help them move towards a more positive future - including working, volunteering or further education.

Places are available for the next course, which starts on 9th August 2021. The programme is FREE and is run four days per week for eight weeks.

The programme is delivered within our Ibrox Community Hub at Ibrox Stadium and works in partnership with four Scottish prisons and Govan Thriving Place as well as with a range of other referral partners to target and support young people aged 16 - 24 from the local area and beyond.

Participants will improve their physical and mental health by taking part in accredited fitness and coaching sessions and a mental health first aid course. The initiative includes a variety of formal and industry recognised awards (including utilising the Foundation’s SQA Centre status), vocational work experience and the development of core skills which will greatly enhance their employment prospects and CVs.

Participants will also have continued support after completion of the course to help them stay motivated and on track to achieving their goals.

95% of young people who attended previous courses report increased confidence and 100% report increased skills.
