We want to reduce reoffending rates through community work for offenders and addressing the root causes of crime.
Community Payback Project
Community Payback can be part of a community sentence when individuals have committed certain low-levels crimes. Nominate a Community Payback project to suggest what unpaid work should be carried out.
Divert Custody scheme
Cleveland Divert aims to divert first time and low-level offenders away from the criminal justice system. Divert supports them to address the underlying problems causing offending behaviour to help turn their lives around.
Cleveland Youth Triage scheme aims to stop young people offending and getting involved in the criminal justice system.
