Possible Outcomes

Completion of treatment programme aims to reduce the risk of harm the individual presents to others and the likelihood of any further analogous offending.

Process for Assessment and/or inclusion in scheme/intervention

Assessment for suitability is carried out by Justice Service social workers via a Criminal Justice Social Work Report. A period of structured deferred sentence may be requested at first calling of the Criminal Justice Social Work Report to provide opportunity for a social worker to carry out some structured work with the individual to assess suitability and motivation to engage with a Community Payback Order with programme requirement prior to it being imposed.
