Reducing Reoffending and Improving Lives
Nominate a Community Payback project to suggest what unpaid work should be carried out by People on Probation in your area!
Community Payback can be part of a community sentence when individuals have committed certain low-levels crimes, including public order offences, theft and dishonesty.
It adds value to communities as the public benefit from the unpaid work. It also has a positive impact on the People on Probation carrying out the work. Community Payback gives their lives’ structure and gives them a sense of value.
Local businesses have a direct say in determining the kinds of unpaid work People on Probation (PoP) carry out, which may include the following;
- Improving open spaces
- Maintenance of public footpaths and parks
- Painting and decorating public property.
Nominated projects must meet the following criteria:
- Access to toilet facilities
- Access to shelter
- The project must take a reasonable length of time, lasting a few weeks or longer
- Benefit the local community
- Not take paid work away from other people
- Not generate a profit for anyone
