New Programme, Off the Bench

February 20, 2020 / Community

Dundee FC in the Community Trust are one of five clubs chosen by the SPFL Trust to launch a major new programme aimed at combating anti-social behaviour, including football related offences.

Funded by the Scottish Government’s CashBack scheme, Off The Bench will launch this year. Off The Bench is a 16-week programme for 18-24-year-olds who have committed, or are considered likely to commit offences or engage in anti-social behaviour, particularly, but not limited to offences in and around football matches in Scotland.

Community Trust Manager Greg Fenton is very excited to be adding another project to the Trust “It’s a fantastic project and we are grateful to Cashback and the SPFL Trust for launching this new exciting project. It adds another programme to our criminal justice branch of the organisation in which we aim at transforming lives in our community and I wish participants of the programme all the very best.”
