Aberdeenshire Youth Bank
Aberdeenshire is setting up a new youth bank where young people are being trained to manage and distribute a fund that responds to the needs and requestions of young people in their area. YouthBank Scotland is an innovative grant making and empowerment initiative run by young people for young people. It builds on young people’s skills and experiences to enable them to give cash for action, funding young people’s ideas for the benefit of the wider community. The local youthbanks form part of a national and international structure where they exchange support and good practice ideas. CashBack is funding this group to get on its feet and we look forward to finding out more about their journey.
