Community Renewal, a Youth Scotland group, aims to bring about positive long-term change and social cohesion in communities across Scotland through a multitude of programmes. They have a strong presence in Govanhill, which is traditionally a gateway into Glasgow for incoming communities and has the largest ethnic minority population in Scotland.

Generation CashBack supports Community Renewal’s programme of youth work which engages young people from across Govanhill and has a particular presence within young people from the local Roma community. Community Renewal in Govanhill gets the bulk of its funding from the People’s Health Trust.

“Generation CashBack support has enabled the young people to actually make real some of the things they wanted to happen. I think for the girls involved in Girls Group Sports, they’ve definitely increased in confidence and self-esteem, I think it’s quite validating that their idea of wanting something girls only has been taken seriously” Community Renewal
