MILLIONS SEIZED FROM CRIMINALS USED TO FUND YOUTH PROJECTS ACROSS SCOTLAND
Wading through the doom and gloom of current news stories, you’d be forgiven for thinking community spirit is lacking. However, heart-warming news from Hollyrood reports that as much as £17million in illicit funds seized from criminals will be distributed to fund youth projects across Scotland.
Distributed under an initiative called Cashback for Communities, 17 youth projects will benefit, including the National Autistic Society Scotland, which will use the money to help more autistic people gain jobs and promote awareness of the condition amongst employers.
Youth groups can perform a vital function in local communities, whether they offer training and work experience for disadvantaged youngsters, help for those with learning disabilities, or simply provide a safe space for youngsters.
If you run a youth group, you’ll know how hard it is to balance funding with essential outgoings. Budgets can be tight, but the amount of potential risks involved means insurance is not something that can be ignored. The specialist expertise of Thorntons Insurance Services can secure affordable support for community groups of all kinds, so you can focus on what you do best.
