CASH FROM CRIMINALS GOES TO SOUTH LANARKSHIRE PROJECTS

Rutherglen MSP Clare Haughey has welcomed the news that the CashBack for Communities programme invested over £215,000 in local projects in South Lanarkshire last year. The Cashback for Communities scheme, which was established by the Scottish Government, reinvests criminal assets into community projects which support young people into positive destinations, diverting some away from potentially criminal or anti-social behaviour.
