Community Payback in Action
Community Payback Projects
Offenders wearing badged, high visibility jackets usually work as part of a team, monitored by a supervisor, and will work all day with short breaks. There are also some opportunities for individual placements.
Submit a Community Payback Project Nomination
To be considered a project must meet the following criteria:
- It must benefit the local community
- It must not take paid work away from others
- No one must make a profit from the work
- It must be challenging and demanding
- It must be worthwhile and constructive
- Offenders must be seen to be putting something back into the community.
The Community Payback team will assess the project for suitability and for health and safety implications. Once the work has been completed a plaque will be displayed with the Community Payback logo, if appropriate. This will indicate where offenders have positively contributed to improving a neighbourhood. Anyone can nominate a project, so, if you are an individual, member of a club, community group, faith group or voluntary organisation and have a project that fits the criteria, leave a message for the Community Payback team on 01482 480068 or complete our online nomination form.
